What do we Know?
That Christmas is celebrated differently around the world. Also that there are many different Santa Clauses, and that people get different amount of presents judging on their religion. Also that some religions have a Santa, or elf, or a gnome or all of above.
What did we learn?
We learned a lot of cool facts and here are some examples:
•Children are given candles on boards with clay figures of Mary riding a donkey and Joseph to walk around the streets with
• The most common Christmas song is Silent Night in Brazil
• Children often of the male gender go out caroling in the streets
What do we Want to Know?
How people celebrate Christmas in different countries, and what it is like to celebrate different traditions. Also how many different versions of Santa there are in the world.
What Action Did we Take?
We Made a google slide instead of a website, because we thought it would be fun to something different for a change.
How will we Learn the Information?
We will go to http://www.whychristmas.com/cultures/ and find our information on there.
What Questions do we Still Have
We are still wondering how people celebrate it in rural areas, because they might not be able to get any special decorations. Or how Christmas got to almost every where in the world, and how Santa has gotten altered around the world.
Andrew reflection: What was most fun was finding the facts. It was fun because there was a lot cool pictures ( Also yummy ones I wanted eat) and facts. The most difficult thing would be the slide show, because we had to get a lot of slides with just five facts on each slide. The easiest thing would be writing the facts. I think this because we have 12 slides. Witch is pretty good if I say so my self. So in the end Mason and I learned a lot. Some were interesting and some were funny, but finding out how people celebrate Christmas around the world was really fun.
Mason reflection: I think it's cool that people have diferent Chrismas traditons or stories around the world. also the traditions are often simaler to ours. I wonder how the different traditions started. If everyone in the world were to celabrate Chrismas or any other holiday like otheres around the world I bet that we would discover that our tradicions are simmaler. I hope you liked our project.
