I used this project in my World foods class, though it could be used in any geography class. Students select 3 projects to make from the squares on the tic tac toe. They were given two days in my class to work on the projects. They turn in this guidelines sheet on top of their projects when they are complete. It was always fun for them to work on because they had choices in their learning. I used a textbook, but any reading that talks about these countries would work! You could even change the countries to fit your needs.
