Hi everyone. I was doing a search on EPIC and found a large number of books about different countries that could really help you with your reports. For those of you who have subscriptions I suggest you check it out. If you do not have a subscription, I want to remind you that you can get a free 30-60 day free trial. Happy searching!

Hi everyone,  I hope you are enjoying the National Day events. Your homework for next week is as follows:
1) Complete your research independently (in JOT NOTE form) for your country report.
2) Complete your cover slide, introduction slide and geography slide by December 27th. (You may complete the entire project at home during the week if you choose.) I will be checking Biteslide frequently to give you feedback and advice. You may email me if you have any questions.
3) Be creative, edit carefully, have fun, and remember 'a picture is worth a thousand words'.

We are continuing our country research project for social studies. I have added a few more links in case you have having trouble finding enough information about the country you chose. There are also new links for finding the specific longitude and latitude of your country, explanations about types of government and a currency converter!
