The goals of this 62 page EDITABLE lesson are to see the beauty of the Spanish-speaking world, to be inspired to preserve our planet, to be motivated to continue to study Spanish, and to use the Spanish language in meaningful ways. This lesson is also great for students who do not have the opportunity to travel to exotic places. They can now travel there virtually! This lesson also includes a narrated version of the presentation in Spanish so teachers can post the video for their students to see.

This beautiful lesson about Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and Costa Rica can be presented during one 50-minute class period or over several days, depending on how in-depth you want to teach about these two countries and the environment and how many of the videos you decide to show. This lesson is so versatile so you can teach it in a classroom setting, online, via Google Classroom, or with virtual reality technology.

There are 12 videos embedded in the Power Point that go along with this lesson. Click on the video clappers on the PPT slides to open the videos if doing the lesson live or use the included videos list with links to post the videos for students to watch at home if you are using this resource to teach students online. We have also included the PDF documents to be sent out to students online along with Google document links for three of the activities so your students can complete them and re-submit them to you online. #DistanceLearningTpT
