Unit 5 - Monsoon Asia Group Presentations

In this project, you will research and present on an assigned country from Monsoon Asia in teams of three or four. In this project, imagine your team has been hired by the government of a country in Monsoon Asia to present the biggest strengths and challenges of the country so that its leader can decide its next steps! The only thing is, that leader is very easily bored and confused, so your presentation must be supremely interesting, informative, and clear.
