What can we learn from the data about the United Kingdom?

How does the United Kingdom compare to European nations?

How does it compare to the United States?





The connections between the United Kingdom and the United States are some of the strongest in the world. The United Kingdom is the United States' closest ally in the modern world. Much of the legal and political traditions of the United States came from England and Scotland. The language of the United States - English - is a heritage from England.


Students will identify, graph and describe data about the United Kingdom as it relates to other European nations and the United States.

Students will identify and describe major landform regions within the U.K.

Students will develop a basic understanding of the challenges being faced by the U.K. as Brexit the deadline approaches.

Special instructions

The content of this packet will be a little bit flexible. Because we will be developing new skills in graphing and data use, the learning curve is a little hard to predict. At the outset, we will graph and compare population densities and other quality-of-life measures. In my experience, this can take a bit of time.
