As a part of the third graders immersing themselves in cultures around the world we did a study of how different countries celebrate different holidays. We learned first where the different countries were located, the name of a holiday, and special things people do to celebrate. We then broke up into different centers, where each center represented a different a different country and their holiday. When the students got to a center the read an article about the holiday, jotted down interesting facts and questions they had, and then made a project to go along with each holiday. Here we are at work!
