CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD READING COMPREHENSION
This resource includes 4 non-fiction texts (one page each) that introduce students to Christmas around the world! Included is lots of information about how Christmas is celebrated around the world like traditions, practices, and customs from different countries! The countries covered are China, Colombia, Denmark, and The Congo. Studying Christmas around the world is an excellent cross-curricular activity as it connects well with Social Studies!
Each of the texts has a reading response that ask students comprehension questions regarding the piece (4 questions per reading). Also included is a detailed answer key for each of the assignments. These can be used as homework reading, or as an in-class lesson plan!
WHAT ARE TEACHERS SAYING ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
♥ My students love this. They were amazed at the different ways Christmas is celebrated around the world. I also liked that the questions were open-ended which allowed my students (6th graders) to practice their RAPP strategy.
♥ Great for a quick self-paced center. Perfect for those busy days before vacation and as an extra resource for a mini-research project.
♥ Thanks! Great for my multicultural school. This will help fill the random hours at the end of the semester.
