Holidays Around the World Map and suitcase Freebie

Last year I posted about a map I made to go with Rachelle Smith's Holidays Around the World unit. This is one of my favorite things to do. The kids LOVE it! I've updated the map to include her new additions (Holidays Around the World Part 2). I also included a blank map just in case. :) You can download it by clicking the picture below.

Here are some pictures from last year's suitcases.  We put all our their "souvenirs" here.

Here are some directions on how to make them. I sent them home for parents to make. You can click on the picture to download.

I got the idea for the suitcases last year from this blog:
