National Identity Tasks Script
The stories and ideas we create as a class will help us
develop a sense of national identity.
We must understand that the details will not make
our nation stronger or weaker
Ex. Saying we have excellent farmers does not mean our hexes
will produce more food
The point of this exercise is to help us begin to feel
like a member of our soon-to-be country
Go to the next slide
Task 1: Creating Your Nation’s Geography
Culture is related to geography in almost every way.
Before our national identity can be created we need
to agree on some geographic basics.
This can be connected to our name.
Go to the next slide for the questions you need to
What country are we a part of anyway?
Is it big or small?
What’s the climate like?
Warm or Cold?
What’s the terrain like?
Hilly or flat?
Are there any unique or notable geographic features
within our country?
What type of food is traditionally grown?

best name ideas, explaining what they mean and how
they relate to our collective values, beliefs and
Step 3: Secret ballot vote: heads down, hands up.
What will your country’s people be known for?
Based on the previous information, create three
attributes that will summarize what your country’s
people are like
Ex. Caring, humours, peaceful
Get back into your groups of two to four and come up
with one attribute
Gather one attribute from each group and vote on
the most popular (heads down, hands up).
