Another unit study I created in my early blogging days was the Christmas Tree & Saint Nicholas Unit Study. As I went through it this weekend to revamp and update, I realized just how poorly done it was. There were missing pages, misspelled words…oh my goodness, why didn’t someone tell me?! I was actually embarrassed as I went through it. However, I am happy to say it has been updated and all of the pages and activities are included this time!

As a child, I always looked forward to Christmas. I loved all the decorations, the lights, the family gatherings and of course, the presents. Several years ago we did away with the traditional “Christmas” in our house and decided that Santa Claus would not visit our home. That’s what prompted me to originally create this unit study for our children.

This Christmas Tree & Saint Nicholas Unit Study has been updated and expanded from 12 pages to 41 pages! It includes Language Arts, Science, Math, Social Studies/Geography, Visual Arts and much more! :: www.inallyoudo.net

While we don’t celebrate Santa Claus in our house, the story and history of Saint Nicholas was one we wanted our children to know. In fact, we want them to have the same heart for those less fortunate and to share the love of Jesus with them that Saint Nicholas did. So, this unit study was born.

Do we still participate in Advent? Yes, we do. But, we also talk about the history of the Christmas Tree and talk about the life of Saint Nicholas, the man. We relate these two aspects of Christmas to Advent and the heart of Jesus, which is the true reason we celebrate this season.

I hope you enjoy this unit study as much as my children have and do. It is a great way to introduce the season or to bring in some fun, low-prep homeschooling during the busyness of December.

Included in this pack:

  • 41 pages of printables
  • Language Arts
  • Science
  • Math
  • Social Studies/Geography
  • Visual Arts
  • Emergent Readers (color & B/W)
  • Montessori-Inspired Counting Cards
  • Notebooking Pages

This pack is designed for PreK-5th grades, but can easily be adjusted for older or younger kids. I have added some great activities for older kids in this unit study, but I know my oldest still likes to do some of the activities with our little ones too. They can also use the included notebooking pages to do their own research on the Christmas Tree and/or Saint Nicholas.

  14. Every homeschooling family struggles with how to afford curriculum/supplies/even a little fun stuff. Who wouldn’t be blessed over the top by a gift of $500? We have never purchased any real curriculum and I would use the money to buy mine for next year. How exciting to think of that!
