Museums in Guayaquil

Museums in Guayaquil

Our beautiful Guayaquil is a city full of history and we are proud of it. When you are in your Social Studies classes, you learn about the history of our country and of our city Guayaquil, too. If you look at the pictures in the Social Studies book or if you watch the power point presentations teachers show, your imagination starts flying and you wonder how things happened or how was life by then.

Well, guess what….. There are places you can visit where you can see artifacts and many other valuable objects and pictures that teach you about our history. These amazing places are called MUSEUMS. In our city, there are many of them you can visit. Check this out,

· MAAC (Art and Archaeology Museum) this is one of the most important museums of Ecuador and is located at Malecón 2000. If you visit this museum, you will see many of the ceramics Valdivia, Chorrera and Machalilla cultures made.

· The City Hall Museum/ Museo Municipal This museum is downtown. Go there and not only that you can see important colonial documents but weapons and even a very old car that used to ride on our streets.

· Guayaquil en la Historia-Miniature Exposition: This exposition is located underneath the IMAX theater in Malecón 2000. It´s an amazing adventure that goes from the origins of our city until what Guayaquil is today.

Don’t waste your time, tell your parents right away and we are sure they will be very glad to take you either to the museums we mentioned above or to some others that are around the city.

Why is visiting a museum important?

Bet people have asked you this question many times! That´s because choosing your job will be one of the most important decisions in your life.To begin with, you need to know yourself: be honest about your likes and dislikes. Think of any ability you have or a special personality trait that makes you different . Don´t limit yourself or let other people tell you what you can or can´t do.Keep open to options. You and your interests will change as you continue to grow up. But most of all, think of a job that you truly love and feel passionate about... So next time someone pops up the question: What do you want to be when you grow up ? guess you could just answer... HAPPY ! !
What do you want to be when you grow up?

Have you ever been teased by your sister or brother? Maybe you tease a good friend or you are teased by them at some point. This is something that happens very frequently and it is not wrong if both of you find it funny. But what happens when teasing is constant and makes other people feel bad? That is what we call BULLYING.

Sometimes we think that bullying is only a repeated aggressive physical behavior, but it is not only that. Bullies not only hit, they also throw things, pull hair, kick, call names, threat and tease constantly their victims. The victims are generally smaller or weaker than them and are afraid to tell others what is happening.

Bullying is becoming a real problem not only among teenagers, but even worse among preschoolers.

As a child you have the choice to fight bullying. It is up to you to decide if you want to be a friendly, kind and respectful person and become a good leader or if you want to be nasty and mean to become a bully. What do you rather be?

What is your opinion about bullies? Why do you think they want to hurt others?

Today is May 17, Recycling International Day.
Do you know what Recycling means? A short definition would be that Recycling is treating things that have been used so that they can be used again. Why Recycling?

  • Saves landfill space because it reduces the amount of trash that must be thrown away.
  • Saves air and water. It does not dirty them as much as making new products from scratch.
  • Saves other resources like aluminum and trees. Fewer new trees must be cut when used paper is recycled.
  • Saves energy. Less energy is needed to recycle used products into new ones than to make new products from scratch.
Which ways can you Recycle?
Tell us one or two specific things a child like you could do to Recycle.

Mother´s Day

"Being a full time MOM, is one of the highest salaried jobs, since the payment is pure LOVE"

Yes, being a mother is a non-stopping work. Moms don´t receive a salary for all the chores they have to perform every day. However, it is surely a fun job because they share time with their kids. Since moms want the best for their children sometimes funny things happen to them....
For example: once I forgot my homework in the car, so when my mom realized the situation she started running from the parking lot to my classroom. My mom was not an athletic person, and she suddenly fell down on the ground. Her shoes flew away and my homework was all wrinkled.... of course all my classmates saw that accident. Since then, my mom is known as
the "Flying Mom" :)
There are mothers that have strange ways to act, speak, do house chores or dress. Still, they are our most important person in the world...... aren´t they??? We love them!!!

Share a funny experience you´d had with your mom that you will never forget.......and wish her a HAPPY MOTHER´S DAY!
