Use these Christmas Around the World Journals to have elementary students reflect on their learnings of various holidays during December lessons. Use the activities you’ve had in place for years and add this journal so students have a unified place to store their reflections.
In the end, they have a great reflective journal to help remember everything they’ve learned and something to show off to families.
In this download you will NOT find ideas, resources, crafts, or activities for teaching about Christmas Around the World. This resource is ONLY the journals to reflect on the lessons you are teaching during your unit of study.

**How you *might* use these Christmas Around the World reflective journal sheets!**
Will you teach all of the lessons? Will students do their own research? Will you partner up with other teachers to each teach a country and do a craft? Then students could rotate from teacher to teacher or room to room.
Will students research one country a day? How many countries do you want them to get through?
How will they get information? Will you go the library and check out books? Will they do an internet search? Will you give them websites to locate information? Will you set up a WebQuest from your school page?
Will each student in your class research 2-3 countries on their own to compile one large class book? Will they do presentations of what they have learned as their page is added to the book?
Thank you for your interest! Please ask any questions you may have prior to purchasing.
