I designed this product for students to either research in small groups or individually. They will choose one country from each region listed on the chart and find the information required. They will then compare to the United States. In my class, each group chose one column / geographical region to look up, created a graphic organizer in addition to filling out their portion of the worksheet, and then presented their information to the class as a mini lesson. The other students filled in their chart during the mini lesson.
