12/16/11 Around the World Celebrates
All people around the world celebrate holiday seasons a little differently. For this project you will research that. You may work with a partner if you wish.

1. You will choose 1 country on each continent (except Antarctica)
2. For each of those 6 countries, find out how they celebrate the holiday season (here at home we call it Christmas, but they may have other names for their holiday seasons).
3. What do they call their season or special day?
4. What are they celebrating?
5. What are some of the traditions that go along with their holiday?
6. Remember - pictures on each slide and no more than 5 words per slide
7. MUST include music!

Please use iMovie or, if you are feeling adventurous, here are some fun alternatives to iMovie:
Showbeyond
Animoto
Prezi
Feel free to bring in other tools like ScribbleMaps, or Wordle.



12/15/11 Have a Techie Holiday!

Here are some links for you to use to add some holiday cheer to your blogs, and to create to give to others!

1. This is NOT something you use the computer for except to read directions - a 3-D Paper Snowflake - very cool! If you make one, take a picture and post it on your blog!

2. Create a WORDLE card that you can embed on your blog, or print out and color to give as a card - use Christmas poems and greetings!

3. Make-A-Flake - online snowflake maker - no paper needed! Put it on your blog!

4. Our favorite site, Instructables, has tons of ideas for really cool snowflakes!
