Our teacher asked us to pick a country that we wanted to research. I chose to do this country because my mom and dad used to live in Saudi Arabia. My older brother was born there. I was born in Calgary, but we have a lot of stuff in our house that is from Saudi Arabia, and I am curious about it. My parents have lots of pictures from their travels, and so I thought I could learn about it.
We had to view and copy a page in Mahara to see the assignment.
This is where I found my information:
"Saudi Arabia." World Book Kids World Book, 2012. Web. 13 Feb. 2012.
Doumato, Eleanor Abdella. "Saudi Arabia." World Book Student. World Book, 2012. Web. 13 Feb. 2012.

I have been working really hard on my organizational skills this term. I used a few strategies during this project that really helped. The plan helped me stay focused on what I needed to get done on time. I finished the project two days early! Wow!
I really enjoyed doing this project. I learned a lot about Saudi Arabia, the people, their culture, and the different foods that they eat! The project was interesting and so I really liked doing it. I even learned a few words in Arabic! Maybe I will get to travel there one day. I would like to see the Red Sea and all the different fish. After I finished the project, I think I know more about Saudi Arabia than my brother! I have to teach him about it.
