Sharing about holiday traditions in the classroom is a fun way to learn about our classmates’ cultures and customs. Whether your classroom is very diverse like mine or not, all families have interesting holiday traditions. This flip book asks students to write about different traditions including food, and decorations. It is not specific to Christmas. Students of any religion or culture can complete this activity.
Step 1: Students will fill out this graphic organizer.
Step 2: Students will fill out the sheets provided for their flip book: “My Holiday”, “Decorations”, “Food” and “Traditions”. Instructions are included for the students that explain how to cut and staple their flip books. (It’s pretty easy – Just cut out each page along the black line, place each page on top of each other from biggest to smallest, and staple three times across the top.)
Step 3: Student can color their flip books and share with the class! These books also make a nice gift for the students’ families.
