We also do a craft for each country!
Germany: Christmas Tree!
Italy: Old Befana Broom
I also tried to incorporate little activities from each country!
We watched the Queen give her Christmas speech.
People, the ‘staches were RIVETED! They oohed and aahed over her and her castle!
And one of the ‘staches says ” Man, she’s really old!”
St. Nicholas brought treats and left them in our shoes! (Germany)
For Mexico, we got to bust a pinata of course!
The best part was that my class spontaneously busted into the pinata song in Spanish! It was epic!
(And the door was propped open and 2 dogs wandered in….we didn’t even notice because of the pinata excitement!)
And we ended our first week as world travelers with a meal!
A grandparent made 30 homemade tamales! OMG DELICIOUS!
We had christmas trees (Germany)
Yule Logs (Little Debbie Swiss Rolls)
Tortilla chips and cheese (Mexico)
