PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Caribbean! Learn about the island neighbors of North America! Includes a fantastic 10-page complex text to use when teaching social studies. Also includes an anticipation guide with questions to guide your student's reading of the text.

”The Caribbean: Our Island Neighbors” is a 10-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about the countries of the Caribbean. In the complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, government, money, and culture of the Caribbean. This listing is for just the informational text. The Caribbean: Our Island Neighbors Complete Unit includes this 10-page text, along with a unit test, study guide, and a scrapbook activity.

While these materials were written to correspond to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for 3rd grade Social Studies when I couldn't find anything else appropriate for my students, The Caribbean: Our Island Neighbors Complete Unit is also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the countries of North America.
