A place for elementary tech teachers to share.
My first grade team is doing a unit on holidays around the world. The ones they mentioned were:
Anyone have any tie-ins for these holidays? Short of that, I'd settle for international holidays in general. Thanks so much for your assistance!
It is ambitious and not something I was prepared for. I'm floundering a bit. Thanks for the links. They're a great start!
You might find some information you could use at http://holidays.pppst.com/index.html
As far as tie-ing this in to the computer lab, can you have them do computer artwork to go along with some of these.
For tooth traditions, you could join the Tooth Tally project but that's ongoing from February - April http://toothtally.com/ or you could do things on Dental Hygiene.
My two favorite "tooth tradition" storybooks are "I Lost My Tooth in Africa" and "The American Wei." "The American Wei" is about a boy losing his tooth right before his family's naturalization ceremony. You might be able to use one or both of those storybooks to use in your lesson.
Thanks, guys--you've given me some great ideas!
