Holidays All Around the World (7:00)

This is a super sweet tune about all of the diverse holidays people celebrate all around the world.  They are broken into groups of four so the kids can easily sing along with them.  “We celebrate peace and love all around the world.”  The song itself is about 3 minutes long.  (Fast forward to 1:00 for the song to begin).

Christmas Traditions Around the World (1:52)

A quick review of several different countries and how they celebrate.  Countries represented are Australia, the U.K., and Italy.

This video goes great with our Christmas Around the World Interactive Book.  This book is loaded with different countries and each has a different activity to reinforce the traditions right on the page. Click here to see more.

This is a great video about a little girl and how her family celebrates Hanukkah.  You get to see their traditions, and the foods they eat, and hear her sing a Hanukkah song.

Another great option for your Christmas Around the World traditions is this great research book.  Each country has a close read for content, graphic organizers to plan a report, and differentiated report pages.  Oh, it also has a craft for each country.  Do one country at a time, or staple it into one big book (that’s what we do).  You will be amazed at the stories your kiddos come up with this kind of writing support.  Click here to see it.

We also have this great Holidays Around the World Nonfiction Book with Activities.  This book uses real photos and focuses on the holiday, not the country.  It will easily integrate into any Christmas Around the World project you are teaching. Click here to check it out.
