These things have to appear on your poster:

  • POPULATION
  • CLIMATE
  • LANGUAGES SPOKEN
  • CURRENCY USED (MONEY)
  • DRAW YOUR OWN FLAG
  • IMAGE OR DRAW A NATIVE CREATURE FOUND THERE (animal and/or bird- say what it is)
  • INCLUDE A MAP OF THE COUNTRY

TRY TO USE COLOUR AND WRITE YOUR OWN HEADINGS TO MAKE IT EYE-CATCHING AND PERSONAL !
