Today you will start a slideshow about an Asian country, city, physical feature, famous site, current political figure, or ? You have created a few slideshows this semester, and you have seen many other students' slideshows, so you know the difference between a great presentation and one that could be more informative, complete and eye catching. You will present your slideshow to the class on the day of the final.

Here are the guidelines:
-10 slides minimum (include export, current leader, population, physical geography, culture, and the top site to visit).
-Have no more than 2 slides on any one topic (don't have 8 slides on physical geography, but you can have 2).
-1st slide should be title, image and your names only.
-Each slide should have at least 2 bullet point details (no more than 3) and a related image. Your image should be large enough to see it clearly.
-Do not write complete sentences or lengthy bullet points.
-If you do your project on a country or city, then use the 5 Themes of Geography below as a your guide.
-If you selected something other than a country or city for your own Asian topic, talk to me about the information you will include in your slideshow.
-Be sure to get someone to proofread your slideshow when you are done to identify grammatical and spelling errors, and to be sure your final project meets the criteria.

Five Themes of Geography Detail

As you research your country, go down the list of topics below to guide your research. You don’t have to cover every single topic. You just want to give a complete picture of your country. Start with the items in bold and then come back for the rest of the information if you have time.

1. Location:

-This should be straightforward. Where is it and what is it next to?

            -Staple diet. What do they eat?

3. Region

            -“The South,” “New England” and “The Middle East” are regions. When you

think of “The Middle East” there are details that come to mind that reflect the

land and culture of the region. What region is your country in (Central America, Caribbean,

or South America)? What are the similarities between your

country and the countries around it?

4. Movement

            -Immigration, emigration, migration. Are people moving to, moving out of, or

moving around your country? If so, why?
