Christmas Around the World

I came up with an activity to do with my sixth graders to incorporate research skills, multicultural history and technology. The students choose a country to investigate their Christmas customs. They use the internet and encyclopedias. I created a worksheet that guides them to find out information in cultural/religious celebrations for Christmas or another winter holiday. They also look for any customs their own family uses. They write a short informational paper that they read during their library class. They find it very interesting how most of our customs for Christmas come from other countries like England, Spain, Germany, France, etc....
