PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Caribbean! Learn about the island neighbors of North America! Includes a fantastic 10-page complex text to use when teaching social studies.

This is an informational text, including an anticipation guide with questions to guide their reading,

"The Caribbean: Our Island Neighbors" is a 10-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about the Caribbean including Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamacia, and more. In this complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, government, money, and culture of the Caribbean.

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" is also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the countries of North America.

You might also be interested in my other units for Mexico, Canada, and the Southeast, Northeast, Southwest, Midwest, and West regions of the United States.
