7th Grade Country Research Paper
We live in a global society with people in our schools from many different countries and cultures. Many of the world's problems could be eliminated if we all had a greater understanding of each other. This project will help you learn about a specific country and it's people and culture. You will share what you've learned with your class and will learn from other classmates. You will choose a country you want to learn more about. You have learned about the Big 6 researching skills and will use those and a webquest to guide you through the research process. Then you will write a three page research paper. In addition to learning about countries and cultures, you will also develop inquiry skills that are part of the language arts core, and researching skills that are part of the Utah library media core. This is a major project and will be a large part of your grade this semester. You will be graded on: the information you gather from the webquest, how well you put the information together, the quality of your final project, and how well you share what you've learned with others.
