2. What’s the local currency?
3. What traditional food can you find here?
4. Are there any animals or plants that only live here?
5. What colours are on the country’s flag?
6. What is the country’s population?
7. What is the temperature going to be like during our visit?
8. Are any famous people that come from here?
9. Are there any important landmarks, museums or buildings?
10. What are the neighbouring countries? Is it an island?
Once your kids have done their research, ask them to share it with the rest of the family. You’re sure to learn something new!
