What is the colonial story?

For this project you will have two class periods to work with a small group and research a specific country's story of colonization and create a visually appealing poster that communicates your knowledge.  The specific questions you will need to find answer to include:

1. Who colonized this country, when, and why?

2. What was colonial occupation like for the people, government, and land?

3. How and when did this country gain independence from its colonial power?

4. What have been the lasting impacts on this country in regards to its geography, culture, government, and economics? Essentially how has this country been affected as a result of its colonial history?

5. What is important and/or interesting to understand about this country's story?
