You’ll travel the world while learning about five major winter holidays – Winter Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Chinese New Year.  Unlike my regular unit studies, there is no schedule included, but rather a more open-ended list of activities and books. This way you can take your time and explore the winter holidays at your own pace during the craze of the holiday rush.
