Celebrations Around the World

Recommended for Pre-K-1st Grade

Students will learn about celebrations that take place around the world and even in their own neighborhood. We will identify the four main components that comprise a celebration: light, food, decorations, and games. Students will learn about children and their families who celebrate the holidays of Eid, Diwali, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, and Lunar New Year, and interact with cultural props!

Students will leave the program with a Celebrations Around the World craft booklet.
