The Create-a-Country Project asks students to use their imaginations (and their mapping skills!) to invent an island nation!
Rough draft (including all project components) must be approved in order to get your blank poster.
Example Steps of the Project
This project should not be completed in one evening. Plan ahead for at least 3 work sessions at home for a high-quality completed project! Work in pencil first, then proofread carefully before outlining in marker. Remember that all proper nouns should be uppercase (Feather Lake, Eagle City, Flight Mountains, etc.)!

All words that are part of a place name are proper nouns and need to be capitalized!
