Are you looking for an engaging, student-centered learning experience for your class? This is the project you need! Everything you need is included!

Students will choose an African country to represent at a mock economic conference. Students research specific demographics and economics and identify five socio-economic issues their country is facing. Students brainstorm ways to improve those five issues and attempt to solve the issues by importing and exporting goods at the conference. 

Day-by-Day schedule included! (SAMPLE Below)

Pacing: This pacing guide is based upon 7th graders in a 45-minute social studies class. Sixth graders will likely need more time and 8th-10th graders will likely need less time to complete the project tasks.

Assign the board and go over the terms 2-3 weeks before the conference research begins. Note: Only the back of the board is used during the conference. The front of the board is to gain knowledge of their African country and to learn population and economic terms. **If the teacher prefers the board to be created in class it will likely take 2-3 classes.

Days 1-3: Students research five issues in their African country and complete the “African Countries Issues Sheet.” Digital sources such as the CIA World Factbook and ABC-Clio are used as examples but any type of country source can be used. The problems researched can be economic, political and/or cultural but these issues need to be able to be solved through buying items in an ECONOMIC

conference.
