Exploring Puerto Rico Landmarks Free Printable

Puerto Rico although a small island it's huge in heart!   Let's explore Puerto Rico landmarks together with your kids, and learn about places you would dream to visit one day! 

Puerto Rico celebrates on November 19,  Día de la Cultura Puertorriqueña y el Descubrimiento de Puerto Rico (Day of Puerto Rican culture, and the discovery of the island). However, in good Puerto Rican fashion the celebration extends to a whole week! Boricuas loves to party!     

Semana de la Puertorriqueñidad is a week of the celebration on one's Puerto Rican heritage, culture, music, idiosyncrasy, identity, and anything that identifies you with being Puerto Rican.  Schools across the island celebrate from November 16-20.  

To celebrate,  today's post we are exploring Puerto Rico landmarks!

Little one used this puzzle map to trace the outline of Puerto Rico on the brown paper. Seriously, Puerto Rico's outline is not hard to draw.

We're using láminas (flashcards) from Símbolos Nacionales y Monumentos Históricos booklet to identify where they are located on the map.   As we read about each landmark he would draw it on the map, and write the town/city's name.  He had so much fun as he went around the map drawing he'd say, "Look Mami I'm traveling around Puerto Rico."

Puerto Rico has many more landmarks too many to cover in one simple post. Nevertheless, we enjoyed learning about the significant ones located in the major cities of the island.

Please note that the booklet used is actually hard to find, and I bought it in a past visit from Puerto Rico.

Luckily for you, I have created two free printables that you can actually use for your homeschool or classroom!   Click below:
