After building up the basic world knowledge, we are going to work on another project-Nation Research.  Using what you have learned, along with your own extended research, you will complete the nation research project.  Nations will all be explored by you and your classmates.

Even though you will be completing this project on your own, some of your classmates will also be learning about the same nation.  It's important and helpful to share the resources that are available to you.

This research project will have three parts.  The first part is a research paper.  The second part is a nation brochure making.  The third part is a PowerPoint Presentation.  Before you start working on either part, you will need to research and plan.
