The United Kingdom has been in the news a lot lately after last week’s vote to leave the European Union, a.k.a. Brexit. Marc, our teacher for the English/Math Brush Up class, asked EOC staff: “Do you know the difference between the UK, Great Britain, and England?” We sat around trying to figure it out.
So, do you know the difference?
If you are stumped, below is a video from the educational Youtube channel CGP Grey that explains the differences. The channel also has a video explaining the European Union, or at least its definition in 2013. The video is posted below as well. Hopefully, once the negotiations between the UK and EU are figured out, there will be another video to explain how it all works.
