I hope this wonderful season finds you all well!
Over the next few weeks, we will be doing a unit study on Christmas Around the World. In case any of you want to do your own study as well, I thought I would post some of the resources we will be using! =) And later post how it all went! =)
There are many resources out there, and learning about other cultures and how they celebrate Jesus is going to be exciting!
I have scheduled us a few weeks off for December, so we can really enjoy our time together. Do crafts, bake, Christmas markets, snow play etc...
The countries we will be "visiting" are:
While I would love to travel the WHOLE world... my kids are still under 7 so I think 7 countries is good maybe even pushing it! =)
So here you go!
