Are you looking for something to teach Winter Holidays Around the World? This Journal covers 11 Winter Holiday locations, traditions, and flags. Students locate the country on the map or globe, view the country’s flag (or holiday flag) and read the passage provided telling about each holiday tradition.

Children complete the work page on their own each day. Each page covers handwriting and asks the student to draw a pictures of something they learned to check for comprehension. At the bottom of the page, it asks students to draw one of their family traditions. You can have them then discuss with a partner. You can add some fun by having students bringing in traditional food at the end of the unit. This is a nice keepsake for students to refer to later and share with their families.
