The Guyanas = Las Guayanas. America = Las Americas [Series].
Written for teachers to use with migrant children in elementary grades and to highlight the many Americas, this bilingual English/Spanish social studies resource booklet provides historical and cultural background information on the Guyanas--French Guyana, Surinam, and Guyana. A table of contents indicates the language--Spanish or English--in which the topics are written. The quarterly provides an encyclopedia-style overview of the history, geography, government, economy, culture, and society of each of the three Guyanas. The chapter on Surinam pays special attention to that country's successful multi-ethnic society and describes the history and culture of the Hindus, Bush Negroes, Amerindians, and Creoles who live there. Consisting mainly of narrative text, the booklet includes maps, illustrations, word searches, vocabulary games, and other activities in English and Spanish. (LFL)
