This month we have been learning all about Christmas Around The World. The last couple of weeks we learned about Germany, Russia, Holland and Italy. We've been making yummy food from around the World, watching movies and videos, making fun ornaments, reading lots of books and listening to music. Last week we took a live online Currclick class from Founders Academy where we learned about what Christmas was like during colonial times. The course went along nicely with our Christmas Around The World unit study because it covered Holland and British Christmas traditions as well. Last week we also watched a great movie called Santa and Pete which is a movie about the Holland legend of Sinterklaas. The kids said this has been their most favorite unit study so far for the new school year. Oh and the kids also had a goodie arrive in the mail all the way from Canada. Their adopted Canadian Grandma sent them some special Canadian coins!
Here are some photos of what we have been up to:

We have been watching some great videos on YouTube. Do you use YouTube in your homeschool? It is a fabulous resource here is one video we watched to learn about the legend of Befana. View the other videos we have been watching for our Christmas Around the World unit study here.
