Our First Graders are learning about how people all over the world celebrate holidays in December. We will explore a variety of traditions and cultures as part of our Community Unit- Our World! Students will also be learning basic mapping skills as we venture around the world.
To begin our unit, all students applied for RES passports. Students needed to know their address and well as their birthday to complete the application. Once the passports were issued we were ready to travel. Our first stop, Norway! Students boarded our plane and watched a short in flight movie that taught us all about traditions from Norway including Santa Lucia Day. Students colored a map and flag for the country and then created their own Santa Lucia crown as a souvenir. Stay tuned for our next stop!
