REVIEW
This is an interactive site where students can explore the geography of the Ecuadorian Amazon and learn about the rainforest and the Quichua people who call it home. Students can get answers such questions as where the Amazon is, where the name comes from, who lives there, how inhabitants make a living, and what is grown there as they interactively learn about how the Quichua live off the land. Next students will enjoy using their knowledge to play the interactive Ecotourism Simulation Game where they plan and manage a locally controlled ecotourism project along the Rio Napo and try to make it sustainable..
