    They are going to choose a country...Niger, Zimbabwae ect...

    and will research things about their choosen place

    IE:

    Topography
    Population
    Death/Birth rate
    Climate
    Animals



    What other things would you be interested in?

    I am going to have them put these facts on a "soccer ball shaped object and then hang them in my room


    I will have them include current issues such as genocide, AIDS ect...


    There are many standard research items but I don't want to list them all because I am looking for fresh ideas and want to see what you all come up with.
    Which produces a multitude of responses.

    Thanks to SarasotaRepub for your help! :D

    Do try and keep up

    However, perhaps one of the most astounding and previously unknown tidbits about Sarah Palin has to do with her already dubious grasp of geography. According to Fox News Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron, there was great concern within the McCain campaign that Palin lacked "a degree of knowledgeability necessary to be a running mate, a vice president, a heartbeat away from the presidency," in part because she didn't know which countries were in NAFTA, and she "didn't understand that Africa was a continent, rather than a series, a country just in itself."

    I don't see how the poster implies that Africa is a country. Are you still half-asleep Sonnabend?

    "They are going to choose a country...Niger, Zimbabwae etc..."

    I do think that a teacher should at least know how to spell things correctly and use correct punctuation...it should be "Zimbabwe, etc....."

    I had to make a diorama of an african village once, in elementary school. It was a fun project, I got to use clay and other fun things to make little huts. My country was Zaire, which has since changed names to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

    Africa is not a country, or so the media keeps telling us.It's a continent...which is why they bashed Sarah over it. Even though the report was rumour and nothing more.
