Harry has already made up his mind about the places he is going to stop by in his journey. He is in his room, spending some time with his road atlas, flipping back and forth the pages so that he gets a whole picture of the country and the stops he is going to make. By using a map of the USA, find the states these cities belong to and put in order, in an imaginary line, from East to West, the above cities. STAGE 1: AT HOME
Memphis: Tennessee Santa Fe: New Mexico Washington, D.C: Maryland Flagstaff: Arizona Los Angeles: California New York City: New York Oklahoma: Oklahoma Lexington: Kentucky
STAGE 2:STILL AT HOME Before he sets off, still at home, he makes a search on the web to obtain some basic information about the places he is visiting. After navigating through the web and clicking once and again on the many options and icons he is offered, he finds out the following pieces of information. You have to link this information to one of the cities in task 1.
-Here is the most popular horse race track in America: LEXINGTON -It has the only coliseum, which has hosted two Olympic Games: LOS ANGELES -It's the place where the king of rock and roll lived and died: MEMPHIS -Here you can get off the subway at Little Italy, China Town and Harlem: NEW YORK CITY -One of the world's natural wonders is waiting for you: FLAGSTAFF -The place to learn about native Pueblo Indians: SANTA FE -There is a museum, which shows you the history of the country: WASHINGTON -This is where the Land Run took place: OKLAHOMA
STAGE 3: NEW YORK CITY After arriving in New York and finding his accommodation, Harry made up his mind about his plan for the next day. As most tourists do, at their stay in the Big Apple, Harry thought about visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The following morning, he made his way to the subway, where he got on a train that took him to the South tip of Manhattan. As he left the subway station he found the Nationall Park Service building where tickets for the ferry to Liberty can be bought. He walked directly to it and as he was approaching he saw a booth where he could learn more about the National Park Service and obtain a year pass to all places of interest belonging to this institution. One of the park rangers provided him with the information regarding passes and asked him to fill in a form with his personal data.
We have had a problem in this exercise. When we opened the page web, that not found. So we can´t do the exercise. SORRY!
STAGE 4: WASHINGTON, D.C While sightseeing Washington, D.C., he learnt about several presidents in and around the places of interest in the National Mall: the Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt Memorials, the Washington Monument, the Capitol, the White House, the Ford Theatre, the Arlington Cemetery, etc. He became so interested about the history of his own country that he entered one of the branches of the Public Library to look for information about those presidents. Near the National Mall, he found the branch at 1101 24th St, N.W. open to the public. He entered the public library building and searched the web for information. Put in historical order, from the earliest to the most recent, the following list of presidents.
1. George Washington 2. Thomas Jefferson 3. Abraham Linconln 4. Frankling D. Roosevelt 5. John F. Kennedy 6. Ronald Reagan 7. William J. Clinton 8. George W. Bush 9. BarackObama
STAGE 5: STILL IN WASHINGTON D.C. During his stay in Washington, D.C., Harry noticed something unusual about the city: The National Mall, with the White House, the Capitol, etc, was in the District of Columbia; but going across the Arlington Memorial Bridge to see the Arlington Cemetery and the Pentagon meant entering into the state of Virginia, whereas riding the Metro Red Line to the North meant going into the state of Maryland. These facts arose his interest and he learnt that Washington is the only city in the country that does not belong to a state but it is itself the District of Columbia. Try to find the names of the state where he is stopping by in his trip across the country.
-Arizona: is a state of the United States of America located in the southwestern region of the United States. The capital and largest city is Phoenix.

Nashville has the state's largest metropolitan area, at 1,521,437 people.
STAGE 6: LEXINGTON After his stay in Washington, D.C., he moved to the West, he went across the Shenandoah National Park, part of the Appalachians Mountains, and, in that way, he felt the same as the pioneers when going for the first time over the mountain range that set the limit for the first colonies. His motel was near Lexington, Kentucky, - a popular place for horse racing -, but, to this surprise, in the motel room, he found a bunch of tourist leaflets and brochures describing Daniel Boone's county. When he was a kid he read many stories about this pioneer and now he was having the chance to learn about the real person. Decide whether these statements are true (T) or false (F).
-Daniel Boone was an explorer of Kentucky. TRUE -Daniel Boone was born in Kentucky. FALSE -His first job was as a hunter.FALSE -John Finley was one of his great friends. TRUE -He was an explorer and never got married. FALSE -At Harrodsburg, he built his house. FALSE -The furthest point he explored was West Virginia.TRUE -He moved to Missouri for the last years of his life. FALSE
STAGE 7:MEMPHIS As he was approaching to Memphis, he turned on the radio in the car and turned up a local radio station where there was some Elvis Presley's music on. He was so glad to arrive to the King's land. He would visit Graceland and enjoy with all the Elvis Presley's memorabilia in his mansion. A friend had told him that he could make ticket reservation on-line and that's what he had done at www.elvis.com/graceland. The website was really cool because he could send e-cards with music and subscribe to an e-newsletter as well. Enter the website and while you listen to the e-cards, try to divide up the letters of this song and make up the words of it.
Ámame tiernamente Ámame querida Dime que eres mía Yo seré tuyo a través de los años Hasta el fin de los días
(Cuando por fin mis sueños se realicen Querida esto sé Que la Felicidad te seguirá Por donde tu vayas) Ámametiernamente, Ámamedulcemente, Nunca me dejesir Has completado mi vida Y teamotanto Ámametiernamente, Ámamefielmente Cumpletodosmissueños Porque querida mía te amo, Y siempre lo haré
Ámame tiernamente, Ámame por mucho tiempo, Llévame a tu corazón Porque es ahí donde pertenezco Y nunca nos separaremos
STAGE 8: OKLAHOMA CITY Harry, our traveller, kept moving West till he got to the rolling hills and prairies of Oklahoma, where he stopped at his capital city, Oklahoma City. At school, in his American History class he had studied about the origin of American cities: the first settlers in the Massachusetts area, the colonists of the original states, the Dutch founders of New York, hunters and gold-finders in the Rocky Mountains states, Asian traders in San Francisco and the like, but he knew that Oklahoma City was a different case because of the Land Run. Find about the Land Run and complete the following sentences with appropriate information.
-During the XIXth century many Indian tribes were from all over the country into de area known as Oklahoman Territory. -No Indian tribe lived in a piece of land called Unassigned Lands. -By 1889 pioneers began slipping over into this area without authorization. -The date of the Land Run was 1st May of 1889. -50,000 people gathered at the boundaries. -The Land Run began when attracting railroads to Oklahoma City, and the new town was well on its way to economic prosperity. -Oklahoma City was originally called Stockyards City. -By 1900, the population had doubled.
STAGE 9: SANTA FE Harry is already in New Mexico. New Mexico is one of the most recent American states, in terms of its union to the US, but one of the oldest and richest in history. It is important not only because of its Hispanic heritage but also - and most important - because of the many Native Indian communities living in the area for centuries, before any European settlement. These Indian communities are called Pueblos. Santa Fe is a shortening of the complete name Spanish colonists gave to the city. Nowadays, it houses extraordinary museums, historic sites and art galleries. Try to match the pieces in information in group A, B and C.
*San Miguel _ where the Chapel of Guadalupe is _ District Chapel *Agua Fria _ one of the Native American communities in NM _ street. *Sena Plaza _ the oldest settlement in town_ historic site *Taos Pueblo _ The oldest church in town_ Indian tribe *Analco _ An old large hacienda_Historic site *Camino Lejo _ An outstanding modernist artist _ Main road *Georgia O'keeffe _ it houses important museums _ museum
STAGE 10: FLAGSTAFF Harry has arrived to Arizona and his trip to the West is almost done. This is a land of natural beauty and The Grand Canyon is just round the corner from Flagstaff. Harry likes not only sightseeing but also adventure and, no doubt, that is where he is heading to at this stage of his journey.The facilities at The Grand Canyon National Park include a visitor's centre where he found a computer. He entered the Canyon website and he realized that he could send email postcards with some of The Grand Canyon pictures.
This exercise is in the email.
STAGE 11: STILL IN FLAGSTAFF After an exciting day at The Grand Canyon, a good dinner at a popular restaurant is the expected reward. Back in town, Harry decides to make his way to one of the most popular restaurants serving American traditional food. His choice of restaurant was Cracker Barrel, where he enjoyed a plentiful dinner. Decide what the following dishes correspond to - meat, vegetables, desserts, etc - and whether they are part of the breakfast or the regular menu. Could you also try to translate their names into Spanish?
-Homemade beef stew n'corn bread – meat – regular menu Estofado de carne con pan de maíz -Fired Apples – fruit – breakfast Manzanasasadas -Grilled Pork Chop – meat – regular menu Chuleta de cerdo a la plancha -Half pound bacon cheeseburger platter – meat – lunch or dinner Hamburguesa con queso y tocino -Tossed salad - vegetables – lunch or dinner Ensaladamixta -Chocolate cobblers – dessert - lunch Pasteles de chocolate -Uncle Herschel's favorite - breakfast Plato convinado -Maple pancakes - dessert Pasteles
STAGE 12: LOS ÁNGELES The trip comes to an end. Harry has just arrived in California -the Pacific, the West Coast- and his final destination is Los Angeles, where he is staying for a few days before flying back home to the East Coast. Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the US with so many districts that each one of them could make a city of their own. It is one of the largest cities in terms of size but it is also one of the most multicultural places in the country, with large communities from almost everywhere in the world. In the same way, other places are so close that it is hard to distinguish boundaries. One of those places, on the coastline, is Long Beach. One day, while he was strolling around Queensway Bay, he went into one of the popular coffee stores for a drink and, by chance, he met a girl called Emily Germano. They sat for a while to drink their coffee and began to talk and learn about each other. They arranged to meet the following day and Emily would come with some of her friends from school. Emily and her friends are students at Woodrow Wilson High School in Long Beach. School clubs are a tradition in American schools and students enjoy participating in their activities.
*History of clubs: The first high school student-based organization chartered in Sacramento High School in California, in May of 1925.The concept of instilling an organized, separate entity separate from the school itself came from Albert Olney, and Frank Vincent. They were school administrators and Kiwanis Club members who were looking to form a junior service club in the school. This organization later became known as Key Club. Key Club now stands today as the largest student-based organization in the world, though not the largest high school organization in the world. Tracking down precise history of high school organizations is difficult as several thousand types of clubs exist. Prominent clubs include high school subdivisions of Red Cross, Make-A-Wish Foundation, National Honor Society, National Beta Club, Junior State of America, Interact, Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda, among many other organizations. Each club has their own timeline, with hallmark internal achievements only known by members of each respective club.
*Reasons why people join clubs: Students join clubs for various reasons, leading to a diverse pool to choose from in most schools. Most active club members generally consist of freshman and sophomores, looking to find their respective niche in school dynamics. Student-based high school organizations offer teenagers a special element in that every person within the club share a common desire, ability, and/or personality. This type of connection leads to the existence of clubs in the vast majority of high schools. There are no extraordinary physical and mental requirements to join a club. This special aspect distinguishes club organizations apart from Sports (requiring intense athletic prowess) and Drama (requiring physiological control and memorization). Most clubs only require a minimal membership fee (varying anywhere from $3–$30) depending on the organization. This openness allows greater opportunity for creating a tight knit community within the club. This idealist vision appeals to many of the underclassmen.
Types of clubs: There are four main club categories: fundraising, community service, career interest, and interpersonal dynamics. Many clubs offer a combination of each element.
