Geography-Nations of the World (country projects)

Hello everyone. We have been working on our Nations of the World projects this week. This is the final project of the year and will involve them using Geographic tools and knowledge to demonstrate a mastery of the objectives we have worked to achieve all year. The project involves each student discovering a variety of knowledge about a country of their own choice. The students will receive this project in small sections so they don’t become overwhelmed. All project instructions can be found on the Geography tab under the Nations of the World Project page.
