In 7th Grade we are studying the geography of Western and Central Europe.  The students are learning about the fascinating mountains, rivers, cities, and countries of historic Europe.  A project that they will be working on is their European Country Project.  Each student is to select a country to research and they will be able to present their findings in the form of a paper, brochure, Powerpoint presentation, or video.  I am excited to see what they come up with.  The due date is November 12 and we will spend some class time on the project.
