Welcome: December Holidays Across Cultures
Description: Holidays can be a touchy subject in public schools. Whose holiday do we include? Whose holiday do we exclude? Ideally, we should not be making these value judgements, but instead we should be integrating this information into our curriculum to celebrate the diversity of all cultures in an academic manner.
Grade Level: 3-5
Curriculum: Social Studies
Keywords: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day, values, tradition, culture, beliefs
