You will research and organize your information reporting the required aspects of geography.

Your report is to include the following information.  Separate each of these aspects into individual, labeled paragraphs.  You should title each section with the appropriate topic heading.
Too, d
o not forget to write an opening and closing paragraph!

1. Location
          Describe the location of your country:

  • On which continent is it located?
  • What are its neighboring countries?  
  • Where are its neighbors?  to the South? North? East? West?
  • Is it landlocked? Is it a peninsula? Is it surrounded by water?
  • Which oceans/seas does it touch?


2. Terrain

         Describe the topography and land profile of your country.
         Does it have deserts? rain forests? mountains? rivers? lakes? volcanoes? hills? flat lands? etc.


3. Climate

        Describe the climate variations of your country.

  • You need to note the standard temperatures that your country experiences.
  • How many perceived seasons does your country have?
  • Do the temperatures vary much, or are they relatively constant?
  • What is the standard high temperature?  What is the standard low temperature?

4. Population

        Document your country's current population. (do not use a population number older than 3 years)

        Be certain to note what year that number is from.


        
Where does most of your country's population live?

  • Do they reside in your country's large cities? on country farms? in small villages?
  • Is there an even mixture or are the people more in one type of place than the other?


5.Products

       What sort of agricultural and/or mineral resources does your country have?

  • What does your country have/grow as their main product?
  • Does your country contain minerals, ores, fossil fuels, etc.?
  • If so, what are they?


DO NOT INCLUDE INFORMATION REGARDING: Politics, History, Religion, Government, etc.  These issues might be noted on your websites; that does not mean you need to use them!  You will cover these issues later in the year.

The websites listed below are simply a starting point.  Do not limit yourself to these.  Explore all other websites (except Wikipedia!).  You must have at least three truly-used references for your report.  Be careful.  With the internet, this is very easy to verify.

Plagiarism will not be tolerated!  If your paper is plagiarized your grade will result in a ZERO!  Just because you document your resource, that does not mean you have not plagiarized. 
You must put the information into your own words!
