New Year's Celebrations Around the World (A Literacy and Social Studies Unit)

Available now on Teachers Pay Teachers

This New Year's thematic unit teaches how 8 different countries in the world celebrate this holiday. It includes: student book (color and blackline), 12 vocabulary words, vocabulary worksheets, graphic organizers (including several that are not story specific, so they can be reused), student postcard book (writing), writing prompt (3 levels), countries/capitals flash cards, word sort, mapping worksheet, and countries "fast facts" posters. I designed this unit to be used with my 3rd graders, but it could easily be used in both 2nd and 4th grade, as well as with older students with special needs.

Book/Posters Color Version (pages 3-11)
This version is great to print and laminate. I have used it to incorporate into a large interactive bulletin board. I have also used it to display on my Whiteboard to read as a class.

Book/Posters Blackline Version (pages 12-20)
This version is great to print in a book format for students. Students can underline key words in the text as well as color the pages.
