Borders



This study of borders looks at the towns of Cieszyn and Zabrze in Poland.

Learn about political borders between countries, borders between communities and natural borders. Young local people describe how borders can change over time and explain how and why people cross them.

Other videos look at the border between the United States and Mexico, the divided island of Cyprus and the Basque Country.

The study encourages pupils to consider:

• the borders and history of Poland
• how joining the European Union has made it easier to travel to other countries
• the different kinds of borders that exist
• how borders can change over time
• how borders help us understand who we are
• the borders in their local area.
