Product Description
I use this activity in my Introduction to Business and Marketing course when I cover factors of production and economic indicators.

For this assignment I usually have students work with a partner and allow no more than one group to sign up for each country. Students need access to the Internet and particularly the CIA World Factbook to complete the assignment.

Topics covered in research include:
General country information
Natural resources
Labor resources
Capital resources
Entrepreneurial resources
Government type
Economic indicators such as GDP, revenue, expenditure, national debt, budget surplus, budget deficit, inflation, unemployment rate
Exports and Imports
Transnational issues

This file contains:
2 Worksheets (Part 1 and 2) with questions that students will research
Instructions for how to use Piktochart
A rubric to grade the infographics created in Piktochart
Worksheets to complete while listening to other students present their findings
Brief reflection questions to be answered after the presentations

I usually do this project in 2 parts. Part 1 when I cover factors of production and Part 2 when I cover economic indicators. Students then need time to create the infographic with the information they collected from their research. Finally, I like to have students present their findings to the class.

Save $$$ by purchasing this product as part of the Introduction to Economics Bundle.
