Last week, 1st graders began their trip around the world. We have been creating a Holidays Around the World Scrapbook as we travel on our adventure. We began in the United States and discussed traditions and customs of different holidays celebrated. We then boarded Klipfel Airlines and flew to Mexico. Students learned about poinsettia plants and holiday piñatas.
Last week we also jetted off to Italy and checked out the Leaning Tower of Pizza, Coliseum and Venice. Our next stop took us to France where students put their shoes by the fireplace, like traditional French children.
Next, our flight on Klipfel Airlines departed to Germany, where we sang O Tannenbaum, a traditional German song and discovered that Germany is famous for their gingerbread men. Our layover in Sweden allowed us to learn about Tomte, a traditional Swedish gnome. Tomorrow, we will fly first class to our last stop, England to make Holiday Crackers. Have your child share what new customs and traditions they're learning. Bon Voyage!
