I use this assignment with my Introduction to Business and Marketing course. Part 1 of this project covered factors of production for a country. Part 2 of this project covers:
Economic indicators such as GDP, revenue, expenditure, national debt, budget surplus, budget deficit, inflation, unemployment rate
Exports and Imports
Students will research their assigned country with a partner. Students need access to the Internet to complete this activity. I encourage my students to use the CIA World Factbook to complete the assignment. I also usually have my students create a poster or PowerPoint presentation with their research from part 1 and 2 of the project. Students then present their findings to the class. Check out my Business Girl store for part 1 of the project and other materials for the oral presentation materials (rubric, poster instructions, student questions to answer as others present).
