Brazil Geography Unit Plan and Printable | from Blue Bells and Cockle Shells

Brazil Geography Unit

As I mentioned in a past posts, we are using Little Passports (affiliate link) for our geography “spine”. The first country kit that comes with the Little Passports subscription is for Brazil. We did a lot of activities for Brazil and I created a printable Brazil mapping worksheet. This worksheet includes all of the places that are covered in the Little Passport online activities. After the map, you’ll find our Brazil geography unit plan that we used.
