Snapshots of Brazil is a great addition to any study of countries, holidays (Mardi Gras), or ecosystems (rainforest). This 13-page close reading booklet features the following topics:
-World map showing Brazil's location
-Famous landmark (Christ the Redeemer Statue)
-Brazilian flea frog
-Carnaval (Mardi Gras)
-Food (Acai Bowl)
-National sport (Soccer)
-National animal (Jaguar)
-Official language (Portuguese)
I've also included a crossword puzzle (which is one of my favorite tools for evaluating comprehension without the stigma of a "test") and answer key.
Technical info: I've formatted the PDF so you can easily print it as a single- or double-page booklet. The original illustrations are high-resolution, with 300 dpi.
