We are having an Olympic Field Day this year. Every class will be representing a country in the Olympics. We have to make a flag or poster showing our country and we will display these at the opening ceremony.
Today I had to send down a student to reach in a bag and pick out 3 countries. Out of those 3 countries we get to vote in our class on the one we want to research and represent.
Here were our countries...
So of course I had heard of Kyrgyzstan.. but have you ever heard of the other two? seriously...I can't even pronounce them correctly. I found Azerbaijan on a world map but I still haven't found Liechtenstein. So if you do let me know.
I went next door to see if I could steal any of my co-workers countries that they didn't want.. they gave me
Ghana (Africa - this one I knew)
Republic of Macedonia
Tomorrow we will vote on all of these and decide which country our class will be. I guess I better brush up on my geography before then!
