A BEST SELLER! A fun back to school or end of the year project to introduce or review geography and map skills all at the same time! Your students will love creating their own country.

Create A Country Project: Newly updated and revised with my country mini-book, vocabulary posters, and fun student activities. Activities are related to geography and cultural themes such as traditions, flags, climates, housing, natural resources, agriculture, schooling, and transportation. What a creative hands-on project!

There is a 16-page country mini-book to introduce geography and cultural vocabulary and concepts. This unit is geared for younger students. First, have them read, color, and assemble their mini-books before starting the project.

This is a great anytime of the year project! I have used it for many years as the end of the year culminating project to reinforce and review the main geography concepts that we've learned in social studies throughout the school year.

Be sure to check out the PREVIEW for more information

Steps for this Create a Country Project:

Read the My Country Mini-book and complete the related geography and vocabulary activities to get them thinking about how they would build their own country.

Then have each student create their own "Country" and everything that goes with it!

Performance Task: You will be creating and designing your OWN country including:

✔Name of your country

✔A map

✔A flag

Students can use the country checklists and organizers to guide them as they work through the project.
