HOw ACTIVATE THE INTEREST AND CURIOSITY OF STUDENTS:
Typically this is done by throwing a challenge that can be to ask a question to be answered or a problem to solve, or a search to be made, a case to be analyzed in an engaging and motivating. Use google map with the class for identifying the geographical locations of four coastal countries.

I intend to activate the class with a first question that brings about a reaction of the students, followed by a second that allows to clarify the status of naive knowledge of students and to represent the urge to go to deepen the study of the territory:

1) Tourism is still the dominant economy of the coastal countries?

2) "Why should a tourist to keep coming in coastal countries?"
