HIGGINS 2ND GRADERS PARTICIPATE IN CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD
On Wednesday Dec. 19 , all 2nd graders participated in “Christmas Around the World”. They traveled to 6 countries in one day where they were allowed to have their passports “stamped”. Each of them rotated between all 2nd grade classes and learned about different countries customs and traditions at Christmas time. They were excited to learn about how each one celebrated the holiday season. They went to places like England, Italy, Mexico, France, Australia and Germany. The students’ favorite country was Australia because Christmas is in the summer time in Australia and the students received a popsicle as a treat. Each student had a passport to remember their visits around the World. This was a fun and exciting day for all of them.
