World Culture Fair Project

Students will be given a group and a country to work with. Each student in the group will write 3

questions they want answered about that country. One of those questions must include a question about

the holiday that they celebrate during the winter months (November, December, January, and February

all count). Each student in the group must answer their own question in a paragraph from using

resources they found online or in books. A paragraph equals 5 sentences or more. All the paragraphs

will then be combined into a paper. Double-spaced, size 12 font. Students will also make a slide for each

of their questions they found answers to. These slides will be combined into one slideshow

presentation.The next step is finding a craft for students to do and some sort of prop that represents their

country. The final product will be presented to different classes who choose to come visit on Friday,

December 19 during the World Culture Fair.
