Holidays Around the World Videos for Students

Remember how people used to go on vacation and then come home and make you look at all their pictures? Don't worry... I'm not going to do that. Well, maybe just one.

While I won't make you scroll through countless pics of my family's trip to Disney World last week (if you follow me on Instagram you got a daily dose anyhow), I will let you enjoy some of it through a collection of videos taken in EPCOT as part of their Holidays Around the World experience.

Having researched many different cultures and traditions last year when I was creating my Holidays Around the World Resource Packet, I found these "performances" to be both interesting and entertaining. My kids really enjoyed  them and as I was watching them in Florida last week I couldn't help but think how great it would be for children to see and hear them too. 

That's when I got the idea to round up some videos from each of the holidays they featured so teachers could easily access them and share them with their students. They really are the perfect complement to any Holidays Around the World thematic unit and may allow students who struggle with reading or listening to texts to access the information in a manner that aligns well with their learning style.
