Christmas Around the World: Day 1 & 2

This week our class began traveling the world on Reindeer Route Airlines!  So far we have visited Mexico and Brazil.  We are learning a lot about the similarities and differences between ourselves and the citizens of these countries.  We have discovered that some of us have traditions in our families that originated in the countries we are studying!  We think that is pretty cool. We are creating scrapbooks and learning a lot about geography and seasonal differences in the opposite hemisphere.

Our classroom map.

Journal pages.

We can't board the plane with our our tickets and passports!
Did you know Papai Noel wears a suit made of silk?  It is HOT this time of year in Brazil.

On Christmas Eve Brazilians light fireworks to celebrate at the beach...

and in the cities.
