Third Graders Celebrate Holidays Around the World

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!
