Your task will be to select a country or choose the country your family 
comes "from".  Then your small group will split up into roles to research a 
section for your HyperStudio presentation on your country's winter holiday 
tradition. As a final project your group will create a HyperStudio 
presentation comparing and contrasting your United States traditions to your 
country's traditions through a Venn Diagram (how they are alike and 
different), investigate the history of your country and compose (write) a 
brief summary, locate and draw where your country is on the globe and 
identify and explain interesting facts about that country (special 
foods,traditional clothing, festive songs, etc.).
