Belgium is in the news and it is important to know where it is and what countries border this significant country. This product is loaded with materials that will teach your students all they need to know about what is going on in Belgium and I have done all the work for you. This product contains five map activities and ten Internet activities. This all-inclusive package has a comprehensive Internet Activity with 20 questions about the terrorist attacks in Brussels on March 22, 2016; so get your class engaged in digging for the information on the Internet. This package also includes an article from the WSJ written about ‘Terror Network behind Brussels and Paris Attacks’. This article comes with 19 comprehension questions to help your students understand the ISIS recruitment situation in the Moslem neighborhood of Molenbeek. There is additional article included about a Belgium family who lost their son after he was radicalized in Belgium right under their noses. An activity on Moslem populations in Europe is included in order to help your students realize why some areas are hotbeds for terrorist recruitment. This package also includes a worksheet on NATO countries and a map test activity identifying 36 countries in Europe and eight bodies of water. Teach your class the nutritional value of Brussels sprouts and even prepare some in the classroom with the recipe that is included in this product. This product’s main purpose is to turn your class on to the news and encourage your students to bring in current events about Belgium. After your class knows the geography of this area, your students will be more motivated to learn additional information about this region of the world. Improve comprehension skills while you are teaching current events. Teaching geography can also strengthen comprehension skills and improve test scores by providing your students with more valuable background knowledge. If you are not interested in the map activities, I have a smaller product listed without the map activities called "Terror in Brussels."
