Cultural Holiday Experiences

During December, Saris first graders enjoyed rotating to different classrooms for a variety of cultural holiday experiences.  The students listened and watched presentations in order to record imporant facts about holiday traditions in four different countries. Students also created a craft connected to each country's celebrations:  surprise-filled crackers in England, mini pinatas in Mexico, sun catcher Christmas trees in America, and dancing dragons in China.  Students packed travel bags to take home to share what they had learned with their families.
