Brief information is provided on the region, climate, agriculture and industry of 10 provinces in Portugal: Tras-os-Montes e Alto Douro, located in Portugal's northeastern region; Beira Alta, the province with Portugal's highest elevation point; Beira Baixa, one of Portugal's poorest regions; Beira Litoral, located in central Portugal along the Atlantic coastline; Alto Alentejo, often referred to as the "Portuguese granary" because its dry, rolling plains are Portugal's wheat lands; Baixo Alentejo, Portugal's largest province but with few people; Ribatejo, the province which is very rich in Roman, Arabic, and Gothic Art; Estremadura, the province known for its beautiful sandy beaches and fishing villages; Algarve, Portugal's smallest province; and Minho, where Portugal was founded and which features many shrines and monuments of worship. Following the discussion of each province are illustrations of the region's industry and people and activity sheets with fill-in-the-blank, true/false, multiple choice, and matching exercises. The booklet also includes a map of Portugal, a word search, and illustrations of 12 musical instruments, i.e., pandeireta (tambourine), bombos (large drums), tambor (drum), flauta (flute), ferrinhos (triangle), pratos (cymbals), guitarra (guitar), viola, concertina, realejo (a barrel-organ), castanholas (castanets), and gaita de fales (bagpipe).
