Teachers and Parents: Please check each of the websites prior to using them with students. Over time, websites may change, have a broken link, or contain advertisements. If you come across something needed changed, email me and I will replace it!
1. Pick a country to research.

How to say Merry Christmas in that country’s language: MERRY CHRISTMAS
3. Decorate a doll according to that country’s traditional clothing.
Use a doll pattern to dress according to the traditional clothing of that country. Students can google “Traditional Clothing in _____” (their country) or use the images below. Click on the image to make it larger.
I also have a Pinterest board that helps with this section, but most schools can’t access it. Christmas Around the World Pinterest Board
Look how cute some of my students made their dolls!

If you have time or your school allows students to bring in food, hold an International Food Fair. There is always so much food and you will be surprised at what they might try! I usually offer extra credit for anyone who wants to bring in food.
