This product was designed to help engage students while they learn about cultures around the world. It has been developed with differentiation in mind, guided report, pamphlets and short passages. It can be used in class to model research and note-taking, sent home as a out-of-school assignment, or used to provide capable students who need their learning extended with an independent project.
You can pair this project with a non- fiction text, or use it to integrate multiple sources ( website, book, article ). I would first model a lesson on researching a country using the guided pamphlets in this product, and complete one country together before providing the students with an independent project. Make sure to stop and take notes along the way setting high expectations for your students. After you have jotted some notes down, have the student choose a country, you can either use one of the four short passages on different countries as a source or have the students choose their own source. Since, this product is guided, and allows for differentiation it will force students to look for main idea and details that support it.
This product includes:
1 Trifold for a Traditional Meal in a certain country
1 Short Passages Brazil along with Comprehension questions for each passage.
You can use this project as an independent research product, a way to promote culture and diversity in a cultural fair, or exhibit , and/or as a partner project.

I hope this product helps you and your students in many ways.
Thank you for your continuous support.
