Christmas Around the World
As part of our Celebrations topic in World Around Us, we have been studying Winter and Christmas celebrations around the world.
We also made Eyes of God,
traditional Mexican decorations.
The Finished Product
We also studied the Jewish Holiday of Hanukah. We learned about the story of the
Maccabees and their fight for freedom against the Palestinians. We made menorahs
using oil pastels to celebrate the Miracle of the Oil and we made and played
dreidel, a game Jewish children play at Hanukah.
With our own traditions, we made
Christmas tree ornaments and a
secret recipe for Reindeer Food.
