Geography Fair: Take us on a virtual trip to your favorite country. Share with us about their culture, food, dance, music, language, etc. Please bring a traditional food item from your country to share with everyone.
Who Was/Is…?: Select a historical figure, a popular character from a book or movie, or someone famous/well known and make a presentation about this person. You do not need to use the Who Was…? books, but they are a great resource for ideas.
