FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Christmas In Portugal Activity Pack”

by Core Inspiration by Laura Santos
2nd - 3rd Grade

The activities in this freebie are designed to teach second and third graders about Christmas traditions in Portugal. I designed this resource for the 2015 Holidays Around The World Blog Hop.

If you are interested in teaching your students about holiday traditions in other countries, take a moment to visit the link above. You will find my full post blog post about teaching about Portuguese Christmas traditions and links to free resources that teach about winter holidays in eleven other countries. 

Here’s what's included:

Nonfiction Comprehension Check
Your students will love reading the included nonfiction article Christmas In Portugal. You can check their reading comprehension as they complete the 7 related comprehension questions. These questions require understanding of information within the text as well as application of information to answer questions beyond the text. 

Compare and Contrast Map
After reading about Christmas in Portugal, your students can compare and contrast the holiday traditions of families in Portugal with their own family traditions using a bubble map. 

Making Inferences
After reading O Dia Louco Do Pai Natal by Dominique Curtiss, have your students make inferences about the characters, setting, and plot of the story. This picture book is writing in Portuguese so you will likely have to “read” it in the same way you would a wordless picture book. Each inference question also requires your young readers to collect illustration evidence to support their inference.
