These New Year's student choice cross-curricular activities for elementary students are perfect for celebrating and learning about the world's New Year's traditions in your classroom!

They are great as extension or early-finisher activities, or given as take-home independent practice work.

This packet includes a choice board of 9 New Year's activities, plus all of the links and printables needed to complete the activities.

Students can choose from activities like:

10...9...8...

We bring in the New Year by watching “The Ball Drop” in Times Square. Read about the History of the Ball Drop and write down 3-5 interesting facts. Then, using foil, old broken CDs, glitter, or anything shiny, create your own ball using glue and construction paper. Attach your facts to your artwork.

Resolution Journal

The New Year is about a fresh start! Create a “New Year Goal Journal”. Use the prompts to help you set goals/resolutions for the New Year!

Say “Happy New Year!” in Other Languages

Look at Saying "Happy New Year!" Around the World. Choose 1-2 of the countries and learn how to say “Happy New Year” in their language. If you need help pronouncing it, use Google Translate. Next, look up how your chosen country celebrates the New Year. Create a poster on construction paper saying “Happy New Year” in the language you chose along with 3-5 facts about their New Year's traditions.
