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.

This topic is super fun because you get to see all the different ways people celebrate Christmas from their traditions, decorations and food. I wonder what it's like to celebrate Christmas in a tropical country or somewhere like Australia where it is warm during Christmas. Imagine spending Christmas day on the beach!

If you watch our video, Chrismas is in summer for Astralian. Some people actualy do spend Chrismas day on the beach there.

Thanks I'll remember that.

Great job on getting all of the facts the only con I have is that the different country flags with the text make it hard to read. Maybe in the future you can just not have a flag as the background. But again great job!

I really liked your project because I have also wondered before about how different parts of the world celebrate Christmas. I do suggest that you make your reflection a little longer, maybe a few more sentences. I also suggest that on your slide you fix some of the errors because in a few places you didn't have a period or comma or you just had a random capitol. Overall I thought that your project was really cool and interesting.

I'll make my reflection longer next time. The random capitols were correct because Christmas needs to be capitalized.

You guys have a great topic! It was interesting and intriguing. Next time, make sure you revise your google docs before filming the video. There were a few grammar errors that could have been caught. Also, you might want to spend more time on your L. Instead of saying many interesting facts, list everything that you learned. Overall, great project!

Thanks! The many interesting things we had were part of really long or short pages.

I also like your project a lot and I thought it was very interesting. I also agree with Giuliana that you might want to fix some spelling and grammar errors that could have been fixed greatly improving the professionalism of your video. Overall I think that it was a very good project.
