Introduce your students to ECUADOR with this printable handout of two worksheets (plus answer key). Your students will read a brief overview of Ecuador (location, capital, flag, language), write 'Quito' next to the star on the map to show the capital, draw a line across Ecuador (above Quito and through the Galápagos Islands) to show the equator, color the small map and flag, then use the map and compass to answer 7 questions. Colored pencils and a pen or pencil are needed for this activity. No other prep needed. Basic Geography worksheet with a simple map to introduce Ecuador and practice cardinal and ordinal directions.
For use with Interactive Notebooks: After the handouts are completed, students can cut out the map and flag and paste into the notebook under the topic of South America/Subtopic: Ecuador. Under the map and flag, your students will write a summary in their own words of what they now know about this country. Collect handouts for all countries of South America to add to the notebook!
