Activities on Belgium

1. Social Studies .....You know where to start your search for anything about Belgium. Go to pppst.com and Mr. Donn.

2. Social Studies .....Belgium has more castles per square mile than anywhere else. That wealth had to come from somewhere and many of those castles were built from the wealth of the Belgians in the Congo. This lesson on Teacherlinx explores that era.

3. Social Studies .....If you spend any time in Belgium, you know that Flemish independence is a hot topic. This lesson by the Illinois Geographic Alliance Summer Geography Institute explores the issue.

4. Art .....Belgium was a center of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in the early 1900's. For Art Deco lessons, check out the Incredible @rt Department . It's a great site for all kinds of art activities. For Art Nouveau lessons, go to Crayola and back to the Incredible @rt Department.

5. History .....Reminders of WWI and WWII are throughout Europe. Belgium is no exception. For those interested in the Holocaust, the Florida Center for Instructional Technology has a lesson on Bystanders.
