Orchard Hills second-grade students have been doing Christmas Around the World. Two times a week, a parent comes in and shares some traditions from a different country that they have either lived in or been to. They give a 20 minute presentation to the grade level and then we go back to our classes and write about what we have learned. The students have learned learning about countries such as Australia, Finland, Estonia, Scotland, Ecuador, and England.
