Astronomy, Geography, and Cultural Celebrations the Christmas Way!

With only two weeks until Christmas break, I decided to create several Christmas activities that engaged and motivated my students in learning the planned curriculum skills, but also incorporated the seasonal excitement everyone is naturally experiencing this time of year. In science, we are currently studying astronomy, specifically the moon phases and how earth's rotation and revolution create night/day and the seasons.  The activity below incorporates these skills as well as many valuable social studies and time zone skills.

Students will choose a country from the Christmas Around the World website and complete the following research below.  Dependent on the our time schedule, students will present their researched information through blogging,  multimedia presentations, podcasts or a simple informal class presentation.

I'm looking forward to seeing my students experience the excitement of this "across the curriculum" Christmas extravaganza.
