New Years Celebrations Around the World Homeschool Unit Study

The presents are all unwrapped, the candies are eaten, the toys are all played with...what to do now?

Try looking up a few different ways of celebrating New Years! These sites and other resources could be used to send a bored someone on a websearch to come up with trivia questions to ask at lunch, or maybe something fun to look at when a little one snuggles on your lap while you're surfing the 'net. Keep the globe handy!

It could also be used as a full-blown study when you restart whatever type of school you do...
