Ukrainian Christmas Spiders

In Social Studies, we are continuing to look at traditions and celebrations in our 4 countries of focus. Today, we discovered that in Ukraine, the spider can bring to mind thoughts of good luck, especially around the Christmas season! We spent some time reading the legend of the Christmas Spider, and then we had a chance to create some of our own special Christmas spider decorations.

Grade 3’s, you did a fantastic job. I hope these decorations bring a wealth of good luck to your homes as well!
