Show Me the Euro

Designed to introduce foreign language students to international trade and foreign exchange markets, this lesson includes a series of hands-on activities that allow students to participate in engaging, project-based learning and technology centered activities that foster higher-order thinking skills and creativity. Students will calculate exchange rates for the euro against the dollar, participate in a skit on international trade, and conduct Internet based research in preparation to write a report on the development of the euro.
