Learning Happens Everywhere

South American Nation Study, Gr 6-8

Length of Time:   Time Out of Class for Research


To help students understand the complex forces that shape events related to the entire continent, they will each become an expert about one nation. Central to this project will be learning about the geography, history, economy and politics of their country. They will also explore their nation’s relationship with other countries. You may also wish to look at the South American Forum (in the 9-12 Curriculum) for a simulation of addressing regional concerns.
