This is an original rubric and research packet to photocopy and give to students when doing a country research project. I created it for my middle school world geography class but it can be used by any social studies teacher or English teacher who wants students to complete a thorough research project.
The research packet includes a rubric with fill-in-the-blank due dates for each section. There is space for notes and citations of each general category (history, economics, culture, physical geography, and government). It also has a page for map information and a Venn Diagram to compare this country with another country previously studied in class.
