Product Description
The Ecuador unit contains a colonial legend with fill in the blanks with the Preterit vs Imperfect, a grammar worksheet for the Preterit vs Imperfect based on the history of Ecuador, a PPT in PDF format for the beautiful Galapagos Islands, and a Web Quest.

Introduce students to Ecuador with a Web Quest. Can be done at school in the computer lab or assigned as HW. Great way to utilize technology:

Legend with fill in the blanks to review Preterit vs Imperfect. Great way to give students the opportunity to read aloud and practice their Spanish pronunciation. It's a spooky legend so students really enjoy it!

Galapagos PPT in PDF format. Great way to make connections to history and Charles Darwin's theory of evolution:

I also have students take notes while viewing the PPT. Afterwards students write a paragraph using their notes. The writing prompt I use is a simple one: ¿Qué son las Islas Galapagos?" Students get points for note taking and it's great writing practice in the target language. It helps them with word order. I also have students read aloud their paragraphs for extra speaking in Spanish practice.

Suggested activities to accompany PPTs would be a KWL chart:

Students can also label the islands on a map:

As a closing activity I have students view and listen to a You Tube video of Ecuadorian Instrumental music. The video also contains sights of this beautiful country:

On Fun Fridays I like to show students an episode of Bizzarre foods. Here's one for Ecuador:
