On the 11th Day of Tech-mas... & Last Day for the Giveaway!

On the 11th day of Tech-mas, I found a real pearl:

The Holiday traditions of the world.


Take your students for a trip around the world to learn how other countries celebrate the holidays using this link! Students can click on the different colored dots (pins) on the map to travel to a country and read about how the the holidays are celebrated.



Have your students apply share their knowledge of what they learned through their travels by completing one of the activities:

  • Students can compare and contrast two different countries using a graphic organizer that can be created in Google Slides.

  • Students can choose one country's holiday traditions that they found fascinating and share why they liked this countries holiday traditions. They can share their response in writing on a Google Doc, in a drawing using Seesaw, or in the form of a video using Seesaw, Screencastiy, or Flipgrid. To extend the learning, students can reflect on each others responses.

Bonus!!


Check out the code a Snowflake activity and the Code Boogie where students can create a snowflake poster or create a silly dance while learning to code.

My kinder class has been learning about Holidays Around the World. I would show this whole class and have individual students choose a country. Then, I'd read the information about each country they chose.

Thanks for all the awesome tips. I am going to use the "Build a Snowman" activity to go along with our writing project based on the book "Snowmen at Night."
