Holidays Around the World Plans 2013

I've made it a tradition each year to show you an outline of my plans for Holidays Around the World in my classroom. EEK! I'm excited! I know to always give myself more time than I think I need because we somehow fall behind.  That's why I don't do any countries on Fridays (except when we do Gingerbread Houses for Germany).  That way, I can catch up on anything I want on Friday. 

This lesson plan template is also available in my pack!

Something I wanted to add in my unit was a complete EXPERIENCE that the students get! Play the sound of an airplane taking off, dress like a flight attendant, pass out the in-flight snack, and fasten your seat-belts!  The WORLD AIRLINES will take off in 3, 2, 1.

These informational reading passages are EVERYTHING! It's nice to have all of the key points right there on one sheet of paper. 

Remember, in my pack, there is such a variety that each year you can change it up! You don't have to do all of the countries each year. The wonderful part about being the boss of applesauce is that you decided. With my new update of my pack this year, I've included more writing components and supplementals. It's JAM PACKED! Each country also has a reading passage to go with it so you can stop googling each country right before you "teach" it to your students (I'm talking to you Carly, hahah).  I've also included links to websites and books.... so I have pretty much done all the work for you. You're welcome. Kidding!!! ;) Kind of.

Here's a picture of just some of the extensions included:

Ok, ready to take a look? The best deal is the BUNDLED pack (which includes 13 countries). Or you can break it up and buy JUST Part 1 or JUST Part 2

Thanks for the cover and the link to the map! What great ideas! I'm using resources from several different sources and only have about 20-25 minutes a day to "teach" the holidays around the world this year, but I'm looking forward to having fun with it next week!

Teaching Christmas Around the World is one my favorite things to teach. The kids love to learn how others celebrate the holiday season.

Rachelle, this will always be one of my favorite units EVER! You did such a great job creating this unit. My students love it and I have students from the the past two years tell me it was one of their favorite things we did in first grade. You've made a memorable unit loved by all. Thank you so much for the shout-out too!

"The problem will come if no one is responsible for creating a co-ordinated calendar for an area and it turns into a free-for-all. Somebody needs to take the lead locally on deciding term dates and it makes sense for this to be the local authority, even if schools aren't required by law to follow it." — Dissertation Writing Service

Spending holidays in another city or another country is a good idea but holidays around the world in almost 20-15 countries is such an expensive task to do and it also requires much energy to travel. I planned with my brother Harry to visit Thailand but some of my UK essay help work came up so I postponed that plan.
