As the end of the school year draws near, keep your students engaged with this cultural lesson on Puerto Rico.
2017 marks the 100 year anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson's order to include the people of Puerto Rico, American citizens. In this bundle you receive:
1 Appropriate and informative links to English-language articles and resources for use during the class discussion
2 A word search that contains key names, places, and terms found in the readings.
3 A black line master handout of the Puerto Rican flag that can be colored as a reward or as a differentiation activity.
This activity provides you with basic resources that can help you introduce students to the history of Puerto Rico with teachable moments related to the discovery by Christopher Columbus, Spanish colonization, slavery, and the ongoing issue of statehood.
