Return to book index Unidad 6 : Quito, Ecuador: La ciudad y el campo

You and a friend have won a trip to Ecuador. Naturally, you are very excited! There's only one problem: you will be in Ecuador for only five days. You and your friend must decide where you want to spend your time: in the city or in the country. You decide to research two Ecuadorian cities and two nature areas in order to make your decision. Once you research the areas, you will have to choose one for your trip and then write a description of what you plan to do there. Remember that you have only five days in Ecuador (not including travel to and from the country)! You'll want to make the most of your time.

Choose one city or one nature area in Ecuador and write a brief description of what you plan to do there for five days. You will need to include the following information:

  • a comparison of two cities in Ecuador, Quito and Guayaquil
  • a comparison of two nature areas in Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands and the Amazon jungle
  • a short paragraph describing what you will do for five days in the location you have chosen

Each of these will be the result of one step in your information gathering. At the end of the three steps, you will turn in your work to your teacher, who will tell you whether you have created a plan that is complete enough for a five-day trip.
