Holidays Around the World

Holidays Around the World
Posted on 12/19/2018
Students and families learn about different holidays around the world.

December is a month of celebrations of various multicultural holidays! It is a great time to teach our students about the world they live in. Students at West Elementary had the opportunity to take a trip around the world to different countries to learn about that country's holiday tradition. Students and their families traveled to Mexico to celebrate Las Posadas and to make Poinsettias. After getting their passport stamped, they zoomed off to Africa to celebrate Kwanzaa by making unity bracelets. Up next was Germany to celebrate Christmas by making edible Christmas Trees. Finally, the last stop was Israel to celebrate Hanukkah by making handprint menorahs! Thank you to our students, families, and teachers for making this night a success!
