Holiday Themes

It's holiday time again! Many schools are looking at how other countries are celebrating the holidays. I gathered some resources and wanted to share them. Below are web sites that have information for students to learn about different countries and their holiday traditions. I hope you enjoy them!

For those schools that have Interactive White Boards, there are plenty of holiday themed lessons in SMART Exchange and Promethean Planet.  I also have been re-tweeting some holiday activities that would show up great on IWB's. Here are some of those games: 

Want to create snowflakes and learn about symmetry? Try this lesson plan on The Symmetry of Snowflakes

If your class is going to read "The Polar Express", click on this link The Polar Express. You are your students can explore different parts of the book. For example, the boy's house, a tunnel, etc.
