To research the information and to make the brochure, you have to follow this process: 


Step 1

With your team of four, you have to study and research information about South Africa. The brochure must include the following information:

- A map of South Africa

- A picture of South Africa's flag

- A paragraph with the general information of the history, the geography, the economy and the main attractions (spcially the "Big Five") of South Africa.


Step 2

In order to make the brochure, you have to assign roles to each member of the group. It means that each member has to research information on his topic and then, reports the information back to the group. Each member has his own sheet to record his data.

The roles are: 

- The Geographer

- The Historian

- The Economist

- The travel expert


Step 3

Here are the questions that you  have to answer according to your roles:


The Geographer:

Step 4

Once all the members of the group have esarched the information, you have to discuss what information are you going to include in your brochure. Remember that you have to include important facts of each role.

When you finish your brochure, you can make a copy of it for each member of the group and stick it in your notebooks. The original one will be displayed on the wall of the classroom.
