I have my Civics kids complete this poster project at the end of the semester, spending three or four days on it- the bulk being research. I usually have them in pairs and then choose the country they want. There are seven different topics to explore, including history, economic system, type of government, demographics, etc... to be done on notecards that are attached on poster. Thy are also graded on artwork and graphics. I uploaded this as a .doc so that points can be adjusted if you wish.
