How does the Holiday Customs Exchange Work?

In this 60-minute program, students will exchange a unique holiday custom representing a tradition or theme from a different country or part of the world. Students will present their holiday custom and holiday artifact that has been researched and share it with a partner class that can participate in the new learned custom through an interactive experience. When the classrooms meet via live, interactive video in their GenNET ITV rooms the holiday custom they have learned about will be shared with each other in multiple formats. Click below for a few suggestions about some of the different holidays than can be explored:
