Christmas play

We did a great job preforming our Christmas Cookie play. We practiced for several weeks and were able to memorize our lines perfectly. We even made cookies for our audience!


We had so much fun in the month of December and we learned a lot too. We studied children around the word. We concentrated on the following six countries: Africa, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden, and the United States. We learned how these countries celebrate Christmas. We made lanterns for Japan, a wreath of lights for Sweden, and a manger scene for Italy.
We learned that the pods for chocolate grow in Africa...We got to taste it!!!
