This is an investigation used with grade 6 gifted students to study culture, interdependence of nations, and resources. This activity allows students to pick a country in Africa to independently investigate. Students create a 2-3 page handout or brochure to summarize their findings and share this with the class through a cultural celebration (with food!).
Previous to this project, my students studied how climate change effects different cultural groups around the globe.
A great website to help with the climate change impacts is located at: http://know.climateofconcern.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=article&id=105
Rubric is included in project.
