1st Grade Christmas Around the World

1st Grade Christmas Around the World

In Mrs. Richards’ first grade classroom, students are learning about and experiencing Christmas customs and traditions from around the globe. So far, students have ‘traveled’ to Mexico, England, Sweden and Italy. Students discovered where these countries are on the globe, watched videos about the countries’ Christmas traditions, created crafts and ate food that would be served at Christmas time in these countries. Students are also writing about the similarities and differences among how we celebrate Christmas in the United States and other countries.
