Chapter 3 Europe
3.1 Europe: the physical picture
3.2 The European population
3.3 European Union
3.4 Europe on the map

Slide 1 - Tekstslide

Europe: the physical picture

 You know the location of climate zones in Europe.
– You know the characteristics of the Cf climate and the Cs climate.
– You know where high mountain ranges, low mountain ranges, hills and lowland in Europe can be found.
– You understand the connection between relief and climate.

Slide 2 - Tekstslide

What do you already know about
the physical landscape of Europe?

Slide 3 - Woordweb

Neither too warm nor too cold
Cf climate in Europe, but why? 
A lot of onshore winds this influences the temperature in such a way that it is not too cold in the winter and not too warm in the summer. 

Slide 4 - Tekstslide

The Mediterranean Sea area
In this area we have a Cs climate. The summers are dry and hot and the winters are mild and wet. 
This is because it is located at a lower latitude. 

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

More climates
In the north of Norway and Sweden we find an ET climate. This is a tundra climate. 

Slide 6 - Tekstslide

In the parts of Russia there is almost no influence of the sea left. Therefore we see a D climate, or continental climate, in Russia. 
Here we find warm summers and long and cold winters.

Slide 7 - Tekstslide

Steppe climate
We also have a BS climate in Europe. We can find this climate in Ukraine. Since there is almost no rain in this area we only find grasslands here. 

Slide 8 - Tekstslide

Relief in Europe
The landscape of Europe has a lot of differences in altitude. We call this relief: 

Lowland: -200m
Hills: 200-500m
Low mountain range: 500-1500m
High mountain range: 1500m+

Slide 9 - Tekstslide

3.2 The European population
Learning goals:
– You know where the densely and sparsely populated areas in Europe are located.
– You understand the origins of the population distribution in Europe.
– You know examples of domestic and international migration in Europe.
– You understand the causes of migration within and to Europe.

Slide 10 - Tekstslide

What is the difference between a C climate and a D climate?

Slide 11 - Open vraag

Why do we find warmer climates closer to the equator?

Slide 12 - Open vraag

Search for a photo of a steppe climate and explain what is important for a steppe climate.

Slide 13 - Open vraag

Population density
Natural factors determine the population density in Europe. 

Can you explain the population density as shown in the map?

Slide 14 - Tekstslide

What other factor is important to determine the population density in Europe?

Slide 15 - Open vraag

Domestic migration; this means that people stay in the same country but migrate (move) towards another place. 

Migration is often determined by push & pull factors.

Slide 16 - Tekstslide

What would be a push factor for yourself?
And what would be a pull factor?

Slide 17 - Open vraag

International migration
This means that people move from one country towards another country. 
If you move towards a country to settle there, you're an immigrant. 
If you move towards a country intending to settle there you're a emigrant.

Slide 18 - Tekstslide

Fortress Europe

Slide 19 - Tekstslide

Slide 20 - Video

3.3 European Union
Learning goals:
– You know which countries are EU members.
– You understand the advantages of cooperation within the EU and you are able to give examples of the advantages.
– You understand that becoming an EU member can also have its drawbacks and you can give examples of the drawbacks.
– You understand why expansion of the EU may entail migration.

Slide 21 - Tekstslide

European coorperation
1951 - Economic coorperation
The EU was formed out of this and started with 6 countries. Now it has 27 countries. 

In this union there is free trade. 

Slide 22 - Tekstslide

Coorperation, why?
Coorperation is something that can help the poorer countries and can also stimulate the economic growth of the richer countries.
It is also a way to prevent wars on the continent of Europe.

Slide 23 - Tekstslide

Not everyone
Not everyone is allowed to join. Countries that want to join have to meet certain standards before they can join. 

Slide 24 - Tekstslide

Don't want to..
Some countries do not want to join the EU because it costs them too much. 
A richer country has to pay to help a poorer country for example. 

Slide 25 - Tekstslide

3.4 Europe on the map
– You can distinguish a thematic map from a general reference map.
– You can look up information in the atlas using bookmarkers and indexes.

Slide 26 - Tekstslide

Types of maps
1. General reference map
- Physical map
- Topographic map
2. Thematic map

Slide 27 - Tekstslide

Physical map
Topographic map

Slide 28 - Tekstslide

Thematic map

Slide 29 - Tekstslide

How to use the atlas?
