In this project, we did a small population study of the different states of Mexico. Also with finding populations of cities and certain states, we labeled a map of which states we found the populations to. As a second part of the project, we researched 10 places or things to see in Mexico. Two of these places specifically found in Nayarit.
This project was connected to our class by the reading of “Pobre Ana”, A story about a girl who is visiting Mexico to see her family. She gets on a plane and flies to Guadalajara, then takes a joint flight to Nayarit. There she goes to Tepic where her family lives.
From the map portion of our project, I learned how diverse the different populations of Mexico are and that there are states in Mexico. Which might sound a little strange, but was a sort of surprising discovery for me.
From the slideshow portion of my project, I learned many different things and sites Mexico had to offer. I hadn’t known of any of the things I found previously and I was pleasantly surprised with the knowledge I gained.
From the places that I researched, two have really caught my eye. The Mayan Ruins in Chichen Itza and Playa Punta de Mita. Playa Punta de Mita is a beach underground in a way. You go through a giant hole and inside there is a beautiful beach underneath where you can relax with friends and family. The reason it caught my eyes was because of the structure and scenery of the location.
Chichen Itza was the second one. This place grabbed my attention because it is one of the Mayan ruins. I am a history nut and the Mayans are some of my favorite people and cultures to learn about. So of course, I would love to visit there.
