Product Description
The air in Cuba is enchanting to Margarita as she visits this island every summer with her family to see her grandmother. Margarita feels glued to the Cuban culture and nature surrounding the island. When she goes back to California, Margarita loses her "real self," and lives a totally different life. Margarita has to manage living in two cultures, but when The Cold War prevents Margarita's family from visiting the enchanted island, Margarita and her mom are bereft.

This student packet asks students to think rigorously about the beautiful prose that Margarita experiences in her youth, chapter by chapter. Students will learn about history as well as the thoughts, emotions, and reactions Margarita feels through authentic historical events. This is a beautifully written book, a benchmark book all students should read in middle school.

(I have also created a PowerPoint about the Cuban Revolution that is a prequel to this reading). There is also an historical Cold War Timeline at the end of the book.
