In came a little graphic organizer I created for her. It helped us slow down a minute and focus on each country as they went by.
At the end of her course she will have a nice collection of the countries she has studied throughout the year. It takes only a few minutes to fill out the information.
I also made two other versions. The second version (2 pages) mirrors the first, only allowing more space.
The third version (4 pages) allows the student to write the information in paragraph form.
If these would be helpful for you or your classroom, you can find them here.
