Costa Rica will be the final country we study in depth this year. This is a fascinating and beautiful country of about 5 million people. We are learning all about the rainforests and the animals that live there, ziplining through the canopy, and white water rafting. Costa Rica is a country with no military, so they use all of their resources on education and the environment. We're hearing stories about earthquakes and monkey attacks, volcanoes, and "Pura Vida!" (Pure Life)- the slogan of Costa Rica. As we talk about this country, we'll be learning words associated with the beach and vacation. With a name like "Costa Rica" (Rich Coast), this country is perfect for talking about relaxing on the beach!
