Christmas around the World

On the afternoon of December 13th, each classroom teacher offered a short lesson on how Christmas is celebrated in a different country, which included Germany, Philippines, Mexico, India, Poland, and Sweden.  Children rotated from class to class (two sessions each) learning about various Christmas traditions in these foreign lands.  Students found some very interesting customs, from tasty foods in Poland to wearing a wreath of lit candles on one’s head in Sweden.  Students studying Christmas in the Philippines received a virtual airline flight tour at the beginning of their lesson.  In Germany they learned about the Christmas tree and the poinsettia in Mexico.  India has significant cultural and belief differences that amazed the boys and girls.  Thank you teachers for such stimulating lessons for our students.
