Sofrito 4 Kids: Free Puerto Rican Cultural Lesson Plan Courtesy Of El Boricua

WebKids2 I found something really cool… that I saw years ago but I rediscoverd. One of the websites that inspired me in 1997 to start Sofrito For Your Soul called El Boricua created a lesson plan as part of their Boricua Kids campaign. This lesson plan is intended to provide school children with a fuller picture of our pluralistic society by increasing the opportunities for them to learn more about the origins of the Puerto Rican culture and folklore.

The lesson plan is available to print on the website and even has a program to help celebrate what they have learned…

Here is an exerpt from the site;

When you have completed Puerto Rico studies celebrate by having a program for the parents.

Have your students create a one page brochure about Puerto Rico. Include information on culture to include foods, song and music, children's games and songs, some useful tourist information, things to see and do, and other information that you might find in tourists brochures. Display these brochures on tables for the parents to see.

Have the students create Travel Posters on Puerto Rico. Display these on the walls during your Puerto Rican Studies night.

If your students complete the research project display those also.

Serve Puerto Rican packaged "platanutres" – similar to potato chips. (See the recipe in our food section.)  Serve guayaba punch made with 7-Up and guava juice.

Have the class sing a children's song for the parents.

Don't forget to play salsa music or even Ricky Martin music and above all have a great time!
