EU, UN, and Commonwealth

Find out how international government organizations work to face global issues. Learners examine if major organizations like the EU, UN, and Commonwealth are effective at tackling big issues like animal protection. They think about the rules groups often make to keep order, include, or exclude members to understand how large organizations function. They then hold mock EU/UN trials, make a timeline of global issues dealt with by these organizations, and research the effectiveness of the UN at keeping global peace.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
