Teaching Resources Highlight: New European Union Lesson Plans
This modular series of ten EU lesson plans was prepared by the European Union Delegation to the United States. The lessons are designed to support History and Social Sciences curricula in the United States for grades 9-12 and can be adapted for middle school students.
Developed by educators, the lessons can be used as stand-alone units or as a series. Each lesson (in PDF format) is accompanied by a PowerPoint with additional information to support the presentation. These lessons will be updated periodically to correlate with new developments in the European Union.
