This week Mr. Finnerty’s Sixth class completed mini-projects on all of the countries in the European Union. There are 27 countries in the E.U. so working in groups we completed mini-projects on three to five countries each. We learned a lot about the European countries. Some interesting facts include the fact that The Vasco De Gama Bridge in Portugal is the longest bridge in europe. Also, did you know that Olek Kirk from Denmark invented Lego? The Eiffel Tower can wobble up to 10 centimentres to the left and right when it is windy. And the second largest building in the world is the parliament palace in Romania.
