8AB Geo: Euro Christmas Project

For Geography we will have another project (this will help those of you who failed to do the last one and wish your grades were better!) The project is Christmas themed. Basically you will choose a European country and create a poster and display booth to highlight Christmas traditions from your chosen country.

It will be graded according to:

a) Accurately and well presented information.

b) Creative (dress up, bring food, colourful design)

Have fun with this project. Due: last lesson before the Big Test.
