EUROPEAN UNION WEBQUEST


A WebQuest for 3rd ESO (Geography)

Designed by

Maribel Iglesias. IES Francisco Asorey. Cambados

e-mail address: mariasorey@gmail.com



Introduction


The European Union (EU) was formally established in 1993 (although the organizing body that constitutes the European Union had existed since 1950) and currently it has 27 countries involved. The EU seeks to establish European citizenship; ensure freedom, security, and justice; promote economic and social progress; and assert Europe 's role in the world.


Imagine that you live in an small european country called Cambadia, that are considering to join the EU. You work in an important consulting enterprise. Cambadia's President, Mr. Louis Aragund signed a contract with your enterprise to make an extense report about advantages and disadvantages of joining the EU for your country.

You will have to work in groups of three people: a historian, an economist and an environmentalist.


The Task


The class is the team that will have to do this big report.

You will have to work in groups of three people: a historian, an economist and an environmentalist. First of all you should know quite well what the EU is, How and when it was created ?, members, its economy and geography ... With this information you will have to write a report with the advantages and disadvantages of joining the EU, giving an answer to this question: Should your country join the EU? and justify it.
