Brazil – Country Study Resources


brazil

 

 

 

We have studied Brazil in the past but we had so much fun with it that I thought I would write up some resources for you. Some of them will be just on Brazil but others will be on the rain forest or continent of South America. 

 

banana fritattas

I made these for breakfast the first morning we studied Brazil. 

I basically made pancakes and then fried the bananas in butter and sugar. Then I covered the pancakes with the bananas and added whipped topping.  SOOOO GOOD!!!!!

I think that is the only picture I took from when we studied Brazil. 

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.

Let me say that I am NOT affiliated in ANY way with ANY companies. I don’t get a dime for you clicking over to Amazon or Currclick or any other site. I am just trying to put together as many great resources as I can find to give you and me plenty of options. ;)

Learn About Russia – Study Resources


Russian Flag

 

 

I decided to make a bigger Russia study to go along with the resources I put together for the Winter Olympics. The one I made before so was just a few resources that we used. Not very big at all! LOL

As well, as the resources I have provided, there are so many other branches to study when looking at Russia: music, ballet, art, literature, history, architecture. Go ahead and follow those rabbit trails! 😉

 

As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.
