Sumter County Middle School Students Create Their Own Country
Williams Dominguez Serrano and his team in Ms. Tiffany Baldwins's Social Studies class at Sumter County Middle School are building their own country. Williams is showcasing his countries' flag. This "Create Your Own Country" project has several different parts mimicking 7th Grade World Studies curriculum. In World Studies, 7th graders examine the importance of geography, culture, religion, government, economics, and history which impacts and affects civilization's past and future. By developing their own country, the students utilize what they have learned throughout the year, such as how to grow an economy or best ways to govern in order to build a better world.
