Welcome: European Passport WebQuest
Description: Students will create a passport which will have specific information for each country in Europe. As they students provide the information for each country they will be given a stamp. After they receive a stamp they can proceed to the next country. Students will pick a historical event that that was important in Europe that impacted the United States. Examples of this could be The Potato Famine, World War II or the exit from Europe because of religious persecution. Students will be put into small groups of 3 or 4 students and they will create a poster that shows the cycle of how resources in Europe benefit the United States. Examples of these resources could be tourism, military or import/export goods.
