I like the task. I think it's important students understand the benefits of and reasoning behind the skills they are learning. Purpose! I would recommend a couple changes. First, when asking students to use the Internet for research, it is very helpful to them and the instructor if they are directed to specific resources. There are many distractions on the Internet and students might pull up invalid resources. Since the purpose of the lesson is not the 'how to find' the information, this will keep the students focused on the task. Secondly, I would add some direct questions that require the students to indirectly think a little more about traveling to or communicating with people who live in these countries. For example, Which country would you want to visit? Do you have family who have lived or visited any of these countries? Which country do you think does the most business with the U.S.? Does the U.S. import any products from these countries? etc...
