Europe Research Project
Research any European country and tell about how it is now.  Then, create a virtual fieldtrip of that country.  Since we can't go there, you will need to take us there with your presentation.  Prepare an oral and visual presentation for the class.  In other words, learn about one of these countries and show and tell the class about what you learned using PowerPoint.  Your presentation should be about 10-20 minutes.  You may work in groups as long as you clear it with me and find a way to divide the research and presentation.  Everyone in your group is responsible for the knowledge of the topic, which is also a major part of the grade.  It will be counted as at least one test grade.  You must give your presentation on or before your assigned date.
 
GT - also include how the Great Depression and WW2 affected the country you choose.
