Campbellsville Middle School sixth-grade students recently taught their classmates about holiday traditions from around the world.
Farrah Hord, sixth-grade social studies teacher, recently led her students in a project entitled Christmas Around the World.
Students were divided into groups and assigned a country to research. They researched Christmas traditions observed in their country, from foods eaten during the holidays to decorating and much more.
When their information was gathered, students made poster boards and then hosted a fair for all CMS students to attend.
Hord’s students also brought Christmas snacks commonly eaten in their country for their classmates to sample.
Countries featured at the fair include Italy, Brazil, Japan, Jamaica, Philippines, France, Argentina, Canada, Greece, Germany, China and Australia.
