Argentina, South America

September 20, 2019

Hard to believe that we have been in school for about 6 weeks! In that time we have just completed our chapter on the country of Argentina. Throughout this chapter students have learned many things about this South American country. They were surprised to learn that Argentina is the largest consumer of beef in the world, not Nebraska! They also learned about many of the famous attractions that make Argentina a popular tourist destination such as Perito Moreno (Glacier), Iguazu Falls, Mt. Aconcagua (tallest mountain in South America), and the city of Buenos Aires. We also discussed the different sports that can be found in Argentina such as polo and pato. Pato is similar to polo, but back in the day used to be played with a live duck!
