Resources for Learning About Argentina

[series_meta]

I learned more about Argentina when I first started watching Rugby years ago. When I moved to a small country with a HUGELY famous rugby team – Mate Ma’a Tonga. That is when I learned about the Argentina team, which is an amazing team as well.

Argentina is ranked 11th in the world for the International Rugby Union and in like true fashion of a girl, there is also something else that is cool about their rugby team. I happen to like the colors of their uniform – light blue, and yellow like their flag.

The color of the Argentinian flag isn’t the only cool thing about Argentina. It’s a beautiful country with lots of things for kids to learn about.

Here are a few interesting facts that you can share with your kiddos:

Argentina is South America’s second-largest nation after Brazil. Its capital is Buenos Aires, a city with some of the most historical places to check out when visiting South America.

Obviously, Argentina’s native language is Spanish but since 200 it has been compulsory to learn English in school as a foreign language.

Argentina beef is one of the most sought after beef in the world because of its flavor and natural properties. All cows are range-fed, have a strict diet, and have no added preservatives after they are butchered. AMAZING.

The name “Argentina” is derived from the Latin word for silver, argentum.

Argentina has 23 provinces and one autonomous city, governs itself independently from the nation. The autonomous city is Buenos Aires, the capital.

Buenos Aires is pretty interesting. It is also the birthplace of the infamous Latin dance, the Tango.

Argentina has had two female presidents, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Isabél Perón.

Weird tradition? The president is considered the godparent of each “7th” child in families.

Argentina is the first country to use fingerprints as identification and created the first animated feature film.

And, the best part of Argentina: better than their flag colors, better than their rugby team… Argentinian Empanadas (FREE recipe below). You’re welcome!
