We have been learning to compare and contrast different celebrations. My group researched information about Easter. Something I found interesting was Easter is celebrated in different parts of the world. Next we worked with another group and used a venn diagram to compare our celebrations. Things that were same were special food and celebrated with friends and family. My next step is to have more descriptive information.
