United kingdom


Published on

A powerpoint for ESL primary school children. It explains the difference between the UK and GB. It also includes some information on each member state. There is also 2 slides on the NAtional anthem, and an explanation of the Union Jack.

P.S. This is a keynote converted to .ppt so there may be formatting glitches etc. Please check before use!! It works perfectly on my computer, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it will on yours!!
