This product is an 8 page research packet that will help students learn about countries around the world. Its generic format allows this packet to be used again and again.
Topics within the packet include: government, economy, geography, culture and typical basic facts.
Could be used as homework or in class. I have used this packet for years and love the in depth information students learn. The first time we do this packet, I walk students through it. After the first time, they complete it independently (with help here and there).
I make it a requirement for students to use both internet and books when researching. Everyone can study the same country or pick a different one (teacher preference). I allow students to pick a country from the current continent of study. Could also be done so that students work with a partner to complete research and packet.
I sometimes have students create posters or presentations based on the information in this packet.
Ok to modify to fit your needs.
