Product Description
Students use real world data and statistics (from textual to numerical) obtained from CIA World Factbook to make inferences comparing first and third world countries. All the third world nations are from Africa. Students compare their own country to an African third world country. This entire project is designed to help develop critical thinking skills. This is in line with the Common Core Standards. All data is included, student access to the internet is not required. This entire package is interdisciplinary in nature combining Social Studies, Applied Mathematics and Reading Informational Text.

This compressed file contains over 100 pages and is organized into four modules. Each module is a self-contained (ready to go) unit that requires no teacher preparation; everything is included.

These pages contain country information cards, definitions, charted information, student worksheets and activities, graphic organizers, projects and assessment rubrics. Also included are extensive teacher directions for each module, along with detailed answer keys. In addition, there are extension activities for enrichment and alternate activities for struggling students.

These modules are designed developmentally in nature, using Bloom’s Taxonomy. Module 1 gives a brief introduction to the countries so your students have a frame of reference. It contains some basic math computations (optional). It is on the lower end of Bloom’s Taxonomy-Knowledge, Comprehension and Application. The second and third modules use a guided thinking model that helps the students form inferences about the statistics (Health, Education and Economy). These two modules require the students to use their critical thinking skills. This involves the top three levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation).
