The project is designed to commence with an overall view of the Former Republics of the Soviet Union. It will focus on the physical environment, history and day to day living of the various cultural groups.
The project's second emphasis will be the break up of the Soviet Union. Students will learn why the people of the Republics wanted their independence and the steps they took to gain such power. This section will also focus on problems and benefits which evolved because of separation.
Finally, the third section gears itself toward Russia, the largest country in the world. A comparative study will be conducted which will focus on such things as the size, physical environment, religion and employment between Russia and Canada.
