Holidays Around the World: Little Thinkers UNIT 3


Hey all! 
This blog post is going to explain all about the third unit in my
Little Thinkers Social Studies Curriculum for Kindergarten.
Unit 3: Holidays Around the World teaches kids all about holidays and traditions across the globe.

If you are not familiar with Little Thinkers, it is a complete Social Studies curriculum specifically for Kindergarten
It's everything you need to introduce, teach, practice, and assess your kinder friends. 
It is cross-referenced and aligned to the main topics of the
Kindergarten Social Studies Standards of many different U.S. states. 
It contains everything you need in a neat, organized package.
It's totally teacher friendly and student-approved! 

 Here is an outline of all units that will be included in this complete curriculum:
UNIT 4: My Community (Coming Soon!)
UNIT 5: Our World (Coming Soon!)

I'm going to walk you through Unit 3: Holidays Around the World
This unit teaches about traditions and customs and teaches all about holidays in 9 different countries: Mexico, Germany, Italy, Sweden, India, Israel, Australia, the United States and Canada.

Let's take a closer look at what is included!


This is a complete unit that consists of twelve 35-minute scripted lessons. I know that your time is valuable and you need to make the most of every minute, so each lesson is jam packed with content and engagement
The lessons are quick-paced, written in teacher language, and Kinder-friendly. You could give these plans to a sub or student teacher, and there would be no question as to what they need to do! It's all there for you.
