The Indians of Puerto Rico.
Saunders, Robert; And Others
Produced for use in a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and for other students whose native language is Spanish, this book about the Indians of Puerto Rico is intended as supplementary reading material for pre-school through fifth grade. The book, illustrated with black and white drawings, traces the history and culture of the various Indian groups who settled in Puerto Rico, and describes the environment in which they lived. The narrative section is followed by eight learning activities (putting events in order, drawing an Indian village from its description, comparing two Indian groups, defining words, completing sentences, writing a story, comparing Indian and European life, and a crossword puzzle).
