Christmas Connections around the Globe - Geography Lesson

Short_stories.jpg

This fun activity will be a hit with students that need an engaging review of locations located around the globe.  Students will be provided with locations that Santa Clause is traveling to.  The official name of those Christmas celebrations will be provided to add cultural focus into the identification of these locations around the world.  Students will work with team mates to identity the locations as they are drawn out of a basket.  They will then have a limited amount of time to use their geography skills to pinpoint Santa’s location using the clues provided.  For this activity, a world map will need to be displayed using a Smart board or a paper version of a world map will work too!
