Students will pick a country they are interested in, or a country based on their ancestry. They will conduct research to find out new information about the country, and create a new country based on this information. They will then design a travel brochure based on this new country they are making. They will include a map of their new country in their brochure.

Rationale
The purpose of this project is to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate the geographical concepts they have acquired throughout the year to create a new country.
