The way I use it...     
     Students enjoy this project!  This is a 2-3 month project.  Each class is different and each year is different; therefore, I can't do everything the same each time I teach the same subject.  

      Additionally, for the modified Country Project, choose what you need to use from the selection.  All the resources in the PDF are not duplicates.  They are additional resources or have been modified to meet student needs.

             Happy Teaching! 
              Sally
