PROJECT- AROUND THE WORLD


AROUND THE WORLD.jpg

Introduction

You will take you on an exploration of countries, cultures, and people from around the world. This learning adventure will lead you to an understanding of how people from other places are just like you and how they are different.

Your group will be assigned one of the five continents and countries and discover where in the world it is located, identify the national flag, the currency, and the population and take an Internet "trip" to explore the culture of the people.


The Task


Your group will create a digital presentation ( powerpoint or similar) using all the information that you have accumulated throughout your Internet "trip," and prepare an oral presentation describing your discoveries of your countries, comparing them to Spain in some aspects.

The Process
These are the steps that you will take to make this project a successful activity:

A. Find the following information using the resources you’ll find at the end of this page, in magazines, in books, in the net, and with the help of your teacher. Don’t forget to copy the sources.


1. Locate your countries on a world map using cardinal points (N, S, W, and E).
2. Find the flag of your countries.
3. Find the languages of your countries and give some examples of vocabulary with their translations in English and Spanish.
4. Main geographical features of your countries.
5. Most important monuments.
6. Main cities or capitals in your countries.
7. Political system of your countries.
8. Currencies of your countries and the equivalence in Euros.
9. Information about the area, the population and the density of your countries. You must compare them to Spain.
10. Information about the income per capita of each country comparing them to Spain.
11. Photos of the most typical food and festivities of your countries.
12. Bibliography used.

B. Organize the material you have gathered into a useful form and in an easy way to be understood. Create a power point presentation with 12 or more slides including all the information and pictures, graphics or maps you need.

C. Each group will present their projects to the rest of the class.
