Overview

This unique coloring book provides one page for each letter of the alphabet. On each page, students are introduced to an item of importance to Central America such as animals, artifacts, or art. This resource is bilingual so there is a set in both English and Spanish, along with activities that introduce students to various aspects of Central America and its history. In the elementary classroom, consider providing each student a different letter of the alphabet to color and share with the class. Then, hang all letters up around the room as a constant reminder of the key products from this area of the word.
