Christmas in Sweden Unit Study

by | Nov 19, 2019 | curriculum, holidays | 1 comment

In this free unit, your child will learn how Christmas is celebrated in Sweden. In addition, they’ll learn about the geography of Sweden, as well as a little related history and language arts. Unlike other “free” unit studies, you won’t have to buy or search for a bunch of required books. Everything you need, except the ingredients for a recipe, is available for free online.

This unit study is designed to last five days and can be used with a wide range of ages, making it a fun activity for the entire family to do together. With younger children, read the assignments aloud to them, and skip the written work if they aren’t ready for it. Older students can read their assignments independently. If you have teenagers, you may want to have them research Sweden and its Christmas traditions further, either at the library or online. Then they could present what they’ve learned to the rest of the family.
