As Christmas will be with us any minute (I have no idea where this year has gone already!) I wanted to put together a list of educational Christmas activities that we will be doing this December.
In December we tend to put away the core curriculum we have been working on, and instead focus on educational Christmas activities!
These Christmas lessons are aimed at kids aged 9-14, but with help can be done with younger children.
These can all be done either in the classroom at school or in your homeschool.
