Pen Pal Project
Set up international pen pals for your students. (Two great websites that can help get you connected to other students or classrooms around the globe are www.epals.com or www.peacecorps.gov/wws/correspond/.) Encourage them to write to their pen pals to ask about which holidays they celebrate and how they are celebrated. Prompt students to include in their letters explanations and descriptions of their own holiday traditions and celebrations. Have students take pictures of holiday decorations to send with their letters. And don’t forget to invite students to share their letters with the class when they receive a response!
