Are you looking for a higher-order thinking partner activity for your high schoolers that will teach them the pros and cons of free trade as they relate to the European Union? Look no further! In this activity, students will need to utilize their fullest potential of brain power, as well as the internet, to research some components of this activity (ex: what natural resources European nations possess, how much does it cost to manufacture a specific product, etc.) then apply that knowledge to their partners as they try to work within the regulations of the European Union. By the end of this activity, students will be fully familiar with the EU, as well as having developed their own opinion of its usefulness based on their teacher-assigned countries. Check out the preview!
