Feel free to use the CIA WORLD FACTBOOK.
By next Thursday, create a few slides to profile your country when you present it to the class… Email it to Justin & Peter. Also, post your country presentation on your site (either the exact slideshow, or an adaptation, or link to a Prezi or Google Doc) by Thursday. Make sure your brief presentation includes:
- The country’s name: + capital & geographic placement + a visual political map
- Info on – Gov’t/Economy
- Info on – Physical Geography (Shape…)
- Info on – People/Society
- Info on – Relevant Current Event(s)
