Celebrate Christmas with Cookies Unit Study


Who doesn’t love Christmas cookies?

This unit study is all about picture books, Christmas cookies, and celebrating Jesus. Each day you will do Christmas time devotions, sing some Christmas carols and read a beloved Christmas picture book. The picture books are not just great stories, but represent a wide variety of art work in the illustrations. As all picture books, they are a journey into the world of art, as well as storyland. Christmas carol lyrics are in the back of the unit study so that you can sing every day too. Many of the classic Christmas carols are filled with great things about Jesus and our relationship with Him! There are other activities too-poems to write, gifts to wrap, crafts, games, and parties to plan. Combine Christmas celebrating with learning to have a productive and pleasant holiday season.

eBook is in full color. Print book has black and white pages.
