puerto rico school project

We often get requests from teachers or kids doing school projects about Puerto Rico.  In fact, the picture above is a photo of a student’s project about the coqui, using one of our plush coqui keychains with sound chip as part of the project!

If you are a teacher looking for lesson plans and activity sheets about Puerto Rico, or perhaps you want to introduce your child to their culture in an interesting way, or are doing a Puerto Rico school project, here are some great resources we have used in the past.   There are lessons on geography, culture, the Puerto Rico relationship to the US, and El Yunque tropical rainforest.

These are some resources provide by El Boricua and Exit Studio, with direct links to the resources:
