Brazil Unit Study...and FREE Printable My Country Packet

Brazil, the largest country in South America and fifth largest in the world is an interesting country to study because of it’s vast diversity. It has mountain landscapes, jungle areas, and dry deserts. And in these varied areas lives a huge variety of animals. Children will love reading and learning about this very diverse country.

In this post series, I’ve been sharing unit study ideas for countries around the world. You can find links to the other posts in the series below, and you can download a FREE My Country Study packet for guiding your child in writing a mini report about a country of their choice.
