I love learning everything I can about different countries. Today I taught my daughter about Portugal. We read a letter from a boy from Portugal and it explained how his life was in Portugal. She learned basic facts, did a crossword puzzle and a word search and she wrote about what she learned. Her favorite parts were the crafts that she did. She loved to color a traditional Portuguese rooster that is seen in lots of Portuguese arts and crafts. After she colored it, we mounted it on construction paper and hung it on our around the world wall. It’s growing so much over these last few months.
The part of the packet that teachers will love the most are the writing activities. Comparison and contrasting, as well as writing about what they’ve learned. I’ll also tell you that your students will forever know the Portuguese flag after they have colored it and seen it throughout the packet.
