Kenyan Presentation


Published on

As part of Transition Year geography, we were divided up into groups of 2 and given a country of interest. Each group had to research the requirements needed to travel to their chosen country, the food eaten, the cultural norms, and some of the most popular places to visit in the country. We also had to research how to get there, and at what price. We then presented our research in a power-point presentation and tried to sell our chosen country to our fellow class mates.

For our project we contacted the Kenyan embassy in Ireland and asked them could they provide us with any information on Kenya. Luckily they sent us loads of info and even sent us a DVD showing us the wildlife found in Kenya. I thought this project really enjoyable and I now really want to visit Kenya in the future.
