Product Description

The Learning League has had so much fun celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in school, but someone they know would rather have the attention on themselves. The Culture Crook is throwing a fit that there is no month celebrating him and his thieving accomplishments, so he’s decided to steal a Presidential Medal of Freedom from a Hispanic leader!! Good thing the League is around to stop him, and they need your help. Solve the clues by answering reading questions, and figure out who that medal really belongs to. This Reading Adventure will keep your classroom explorers engaged and working hard on reading skills, while learning some history!
