In this podcast, students research a country of their choosing (however, the teacher may make assignments if deemed appropriate). They will use a sheet designed to record information on the country they research. They will find information about the country's flag, seal, natural resources, population, etc. At the end of the project students will create a poster about the country they have researched. They will also use the "my bookbag" feature to save their search results.
