Our Christmas Around the World Tradition: France

disclosure image
I don't know about you, but I just don't feel like homeschooling between Thanksgiving and New Year's. There's so much to do…making gifts, baking, participating in church events. So I pull the “learning from life” card. 

But then I feel that homeschool mom guilt of feeling like I'm not doing enough. You now the feeling, right?
A few years ago, I found a solution. I realized that learning about Christmas in other cultures would be a great way to keep the learning going. I’d been creating unit studies for my five daughters for years, so why not create a Christmas Around the World Unit Study? I knew that in true unit study fashion, I would be able to integrate all school subjects and come up with a unit that would work for multiple ages.Learning about Christmas in other cultures is a great way to keep homeschooling through the holidays. Studying Christmas around the world has become our family tradition. Try out this free "Christmas in France" lesson to start your own new Christmas tradition.

Now studying Christmas Around the World is a family tradition. Being the techie homeschool mom I am, I scour the internet for resources.  We read web articles and watch videos to learn about each country, then explore with Google Maps. We discover the unique Christmas traditions of each culture. And create a craft or other hands-on activity, like a Swedish heart basket, Mexican hot chocolate or unique Australian-inspired Christmas carols.  We’ve even researched, planned and prepared traditional ethic Christmas meals. 

You can start a Christmas Around the World tradition of your own with free access to the “Christmas in France” lesson from the Christmas Around the World Online Unit Study. Your family will….
