The kids and I are excited to be right in the middle of our annual “holiday school.” This is the time of the year where I relax my expectations (a little, haha, I am still quite type-A!) and we do things like bake cookies and make snowflakes and have some fun with our lessons.
I also often set aside the typical curriculum for seasonal unit studies. This year, I have created a geography and culture based study for world holiday traditions.
*helpful hint- almost EVERYTHING on this website is free for a little while, so if you subscribe, you’ll get our printables free. It’s a pretty sweet deal.*
These are the books I have selected to go along with the lessons and make our studies that much more juicy.
If you get just one book for your studies, this is the one to pick up. It’s simple enough for an elementary student to enjoy independently, but its packed with facts and beautiful images.
You’ll also need a general atlas which will give information on population, language spoken and religious traditions.
