Before I tell you about my Christmas Around the World project with my class, let me tell you what I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about. I know it is crazy! My name is Pamela. I go by Pam and I teach ELA! Corny I know but somethings just come to me out of the blue and I had to share.
Ok, this was such a fun project! I researched around and found all the best websites to research the location, climate, flag, how to say Merry Christmas, Traditions at the holidays, and the best countries to research (because they are found on all three sites). I got the laptop cart and put all the sites on my school webpage and off we were to researching! Now we are making dolls to go along with our country. Here are some pics to show their work so far!
