I use this project as a cumulative assessment of my students understanding of the 5 themes of geography. The students choose a country and do research on that country to answer the questions and complete the tasks given. You could assign a country, give everyone the same country and work through it as a class or let them choose. I have even done this as a class with the United States and then let them choose a foreign country. It can be printed front back and is not paper intensive but really focuses on their understanding of the 5 themes. My students do internet research but this could also be done with text books or in a library.
