In groups of 2-4, students "find a country." It is very much fictional and an "imagination" type project. Anyway, students will have to apply many things they learned in Civics (or other Social Studies classes) to their "country." They will have to choose a type of government and spell out how it will function. Each group member will have a Title and three Duties they will have to perform. Laws, a Flag, a Physical Map, and Latitude/Longitude coordinates are just a few of the other components. There is a good deal of writing and also a lot of art/drawing/posters as well. If and when you have them present, you can get close to three weeks out of this project. It's always been a May thing for me and a good and fun way to close the school year. I hope that you'll enjoy it!
