Third graders from Deauville Gardens East Elementary School in the Copiague School District are taking a virtual trip around the world as they learned about different countries and their holiday traditions in December.

All Around The World For The Holidays

For the holidays around the world lessons, students created their passports to get ready for their flights. They located different countries on the map and then pretended to take flight on a plane to their destination. The third grade teachers donned their pilot hats and scanned passports prior to takeoff. After reading articles, the students kept travel journals about each of the seven countries they visited. They learned about what languages they speak, holiday traditions, population and life expectancy.
