Eventos de Noviembre (November Events).
Pla, Myrna; Toro, Leonor
Written in Spanish, this booklet contains information on three events occurring in the month of November: Armistice Day (November 11), the discovery of Puerto Rico (November 19), and Thanksgiving (last Thursday in November). Following a brief discussion of "Dia del Armisticio" (Armistice Day), first celebrated on November 11, 1919, the booklet provides a poem ("Despedida") and two activities which require students to form as many words as possible using the words "armisticio" and "veterano." Along with a discussion of Puerto Rico's discovery in 1493 are 13 suggested activities for class discussions and exercises, 4 poems ("La Borinquena,""A Puerto Rico,""Bella es mi tierra,""Adivinanzas"), a discussion of the diet of the Taino people, and 2 recipes for Taino bread and corn bread sticks. Information on the historical background of Thanksgiving is provided, along with four suggested activities; a word find activity; black and white drawings of a turkey, a cornucopia, and some fruits (grapes, pear, apple, orange, pineapple, banana, cherries); and the music and words for the song, "Gracias a Dios."
