Christmas Around the World - Germany
Day 2 of Christmas Around the World focused on Germany. We read a short readers' theater about Christmas in Germany. We learned that the tradition of having Christmas trees in the home came from Germany. We createde paper Christmas trees (from SuperTeacherWorksheets.com). Also, we learned that families in Germany make gingerbread houses and gingerbread men at Chrsitmas. So, each child made their own gingerbread man glyph. We then sampled some gingerbread men (one bite to start). We made a bar graph showing which body part we bit first on our gingerbread men.
