Christmas Around the World Unit Study
There are 10 units in this resource that explore Christmas in 10 different countries. Your students can learn about Christmas in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Japan, the Philippines, Ethiopia, South Africa, Germany, and Ireland. Each unit is completely self-contained, so you can study whichever ones your students are interested in.
Each lesson has short, informative text followed by comprehension questions based on what was read.
The student can read the lesson text (or a parent/teacher can read it aloud) and use the notebooking page that is included for written narration, using the questions as writing prompts. This often works better for students who struggle with reading comprehension questions. Alternatively, you can ask the questions orally if that suits your student’s learning style best.
Suggested vocabulary words are bolded. You can have your student look up the definitions and use them to create a notebook. Students can also find suggested definitions for the words in the glossary at the end of the unit.
In addition to reading comprehension questions, each lesson is followed by prompts for additional research and a notebooking page to record what is found. A final bonus research project and optional activities are included at the end of the unit.
You will find answer keys for all reading comprehension questions at the end of the resource. Answer keys for the additional research are not included as many of these answers will vary based on the sources used for research.
