The Christmas Around the World Creative Writing Notebook is the perfect way to engage students in creative writing while having some holiday fun and learning about other cultures. Research questions about Christmas traditions in twenty different countries around the world are given that explore different aspects of faith, family, and food. Students can use these questions as prompts to guide them in independent research and record what they learn.
Next, they can fill out a brainstorming sheet for writing either a short story or a five-paragraph essay (or both if desired). Finally, they can write their short story and/or their essay. They can complete as many of the writing assignments as desired. Christmas traditions in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, England, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Russia, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden are explored. Ages 11-18. 134 pages.
