Students who become teachers retain much more information then if it is simply told to them. Here is a lesson that lets student research a country and presents their findings to the class. The lesson breaks down the specifics of what is needed and is a perfect venue for cooperative learning. It would be used for any region of the world (Middle East, Southeast Asia, Latin America, etc). It also utilizes the abilities of young learners to use technology. You will be amazed how well students do this project. It normally takes three days for students to complete their research and make the necessary parts of the project. Presentations normally run ten to fifteen minutes.
