Is there a way to extend the Christmas festivities throughout the month of December, do Christmasy things and call it school?
Try a Christmas unit study!
Take a break from the usual school routine and dig into unit study as a family. Bake, decorate, sing, craft, wrap presents, and learn more about Christmas with these engaging Christmas unit studies.
Learn about Christmas traditions in other places and times. Enjoy reading aloud together as a family. Experience Christmas in a new way!
Except for math (which you should keep up with), all the other subjects can wait until January while you tackle learning Christmas-style.
We started the tradition of Christmas unit studies when our young family was still expanding. We loved dressing up, writing stories, learning more about Christmas in other times and places.
Now that my kids are older, I want to share our festive adventures with you and your family!
Celebrate Christmas in Germany Unit Study
Celebrate Christmas in Germany Unit Study is a way to experience a more meaningful Christmas while learning and having fun! Travel to Germany with me and discover so many of the festive Christmas German traditions we have adopted as our own. We will explore cities, castles, churches, the Black forest, and a Christmas museum.
Each day will start with reading one of Grimm’s fairy tales, followed by a Bible passage. The devotion ties the fairy tale and Bible passage together.
Reading time is followed by learning about a different topic every day ranging from Christmas markets or Advent to St. Boniface or bears. Hands-on learning fun follows! Crafting, mapping, baking, cooking, drawing, and planning will keep children happy while they learn at the same time.

Celebrate Christmas with Cookies Unit Study
Some of my fondest memories are baking cookies with Mom and Grandmom! I remember eating them later with a glass of milk or cup of tea. Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without cookies.
Celebrate Christmas with Cookies Unit Study was created for younger children up though elementary. With picture books to read aloud each day and all kinds of cookies to bake and give as gifts (including cookies in a jar), this unit study is sure to be a hit! Even older teens don’t want to miss out on the fun!
Of course, the focus is on cookies, so you will learn the difference between baking soda and baking powder, as well as why cookies made with butter spread thinner. And by the way, how did cookies come to be part of our world?
Map, make snowflakes, make puppets, play touch football, enjoy daily devotions, decorate a gingerbread house, and host a Christmas caroling party.
