Your purchase includes:
1) Student Packet
2) List of 30 Most Developed Countries (MDCs)
3) List of 30 Developing Countries (DCs)
4) List of 30 Less/Least Developed Countries (LDCs)
This activity is flexible and can be used many ways in a geography classroom. When I use this activity, I cut out the countries from the list and have students draw one country from each development level. I provide 30 for each level so that it will work for larger groups. Students research the countries and find the needed information on the packet from the CIA World Fact Book or their textbook. This is a great tool to introduce Human Geography topics, development levels, and demographic indicators. Additionally, I use these assigned countries throughout the school year and students are asked to report about their countries. I've found that it helps high school students better understand the differences between MDCs, DCs, and LDCs.
