Today we started our Christmas Around the World unit in Social Studies. For the next three and a half weeks, we will be “traveling” all over the world leaning about how different countries celebrate the holidays. Today, we got our suitcases (that we decorated last week) and a plane ticket. Each day, students will get their plane ticket punched as they board the plane to travel to the “country of the day”. As a culminating activity, we will be having a huge celebration in the gym with the other second grade classes. We will be eating foods from different countries, playing games from different countries, and doing lots of different crafts. Watch for a note to come home soon about this special day.
