CHRISTmas Around the World.....


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:

  • Germany
  • France
  • Netherlands
  • England
  • Africa
  • Hungary
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!

FREE christmas around the world Lapbook by homeschoolshare most my info will come from here...

Online articles - Homeschool Lounge - christmas around the world by other homeschooling mamas!

I will also do a display along with each country, for the kids to view during the season. (example, we just did Holland, had a small suitcase and a air filled globe...I filled a pair of dutch shoes with nuts and fruit, a holland flag, a picture of SinterKlass and Black Peter, )

Field Trip? We do plan to visit a Christmas market in France, Holland, and of course here in Germany!
Locate these countries on our globe, of course!

Isn't this the BEST time of year to homeschool?! :) We can dive into what's really important...celebrating, sharing, and thanking God for His perfect gift to us - Jesus! Have fun and be blessed. Love and hugs, Rox

always amazed at what you do with the monkeys! The Crippled Lamb is also one of our favorites every year. I really miss the whole Dec 6/St Nicholas day in Germany. It's a ONE day of Santa celebration, so Jesus gets the rest of December to himself!
