An exciting country to discover
There is a big, beautiful country in South America. It is easy to recognize on the world map, its shape makes you think of a heart. That country is Brazil.
Brazilians include people from all ethnic backgrounds. This is because of the mingling of European, African and Asian people who came here, with many Indian groups who had been living here for thousands of years.
Your trip through Brazil begins with a click of the PDF icons below. Together we will visit rainforests, rivers and waterfalls, cities and beaches. We will learn about Brazilians, the food they enjoy, their music and sports, festivals, folklore and art.
BRAZIL FOR KIDS is the most recent publication prepared by the Brazilian Ministry of External Relations for students and teachers all over the English-speaking world. British teachers ought to be aware the brochure was written for international release and the language used tends to be more American than British. The 24-page PDF file is 12MB in size and may take a few minutes to download.
The Brazil in Brief section of this website provides data that complement the information in Brazil for Kids.
It is hoped that this could become a useful educational tool for both teachers and children and it is entirely copyright-free.
