What can your poster teach us about your African nation?

 

 

 

The information below is taken directly from the assignment card for the posters. There is no need for another copy of the assignment card.

 

Assignment Instructions

You will create an explanatory poster about an African nation. You may have one partner, but you are not required to have a partner if you choose not to do so. I will provide you with one sheet of white poster paper. If you require another sheet or want another color, you will need to provide it.
Here’s what we are going to do.
You are going to create a poster that is a miniature lesson about the nation you choose. Here are the requirements.
All the words, other than the headers, on the poster must be typeset. You may hand color any pictures or art elements you wish.

Part One - The maps

You need to included a printed map of your country that labels the following:

  • Major landforms - mountains, deserts, bodies of water, rivers and so forth
  • Major cities
  • You will also include a small inset map of Africa showing where on the continent your nation is located.

Part Two - The people

You will need to identify the people in your nation. Where do they live? What is their culture like? What do they do for income? How do they define themselves?
Include a picture or illustration.

Part Three - What are the natural resources of your nation? 

Be specific. Here you will need to include an explanatory graph of some kind. If you need help making a graph, pay attention during our graph making lesson. It will probably be a good idea to colorize your graph.

Include a graph.

How do the people utilize the natural resources of your nation? Explain this with a short essay of two or three paragraphs that is attached to your poster.

Include a picture or illustration.

Part Four - What unique cultural or historical events shape your nation?

Again, be specific. How do people in your nation share their national and cultural identity.

Include a picture or illustration.

 

This assignment will be about the same amount of work as two or three regular assignments. You need to plan your time accordingly.

I strongly recommend that you DO NOT start in permanent colors on your poster. Start with a scratch copy and add items as needed.
