Go on a European vacation. Examine language, transportation, and economic factors of this continent. Compare the cultures of Europe with those of Africa and Asia. Travel through time as you watch the history of Europe unfold — from the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome, to medieval times, to the immigration to North America, and finally to modern day. Explore European literature that has been passed down through the ages.
This unit can be used independently, but it is also designed to be used concurrently with the literature unit Stories from Europe.
