Christmas Around the World Study Includes International Guest Speaker
Third grade is studying “Holidays Around the World” and studied Christmas in Russia last week. Ms. Mitchell’s friend, Anna Dare, who is from Russia and living in Moscow currently, joined classes to talk about how Christmas is celebrated in Russia.
Through this unit of study, they are studying England, Germany, Russia, Italy, Australia, France, and the USA. Each week, students learn about two countries’ traditions and cultures through PowerPoint lessons over Zoom, a holidays around the world packet, and assigned books on Epic for each country. Happy holidays!
