This project is organized with our Belgian partners from Bimsen.

First of all, students were asked to introduce themselves in a very short video.

The Belgian presentations


The French presentations


Then, students answered a very short questionnaire about nationalism in France and Begium in order to compare and comment what we know about our respective histories and identities.

Lesson 1: What is nationalism?


Lesson 2: What about Belgian nationalism?


  • Your mission is to create a collaborative presentation in order to tell the story of Belgian nationalism.

  • Our partners have sent us different online ressources about nationalism in their country, but you can also find other ressources like this example.

  • Your presentation will deal with different topics

    • Emergence of Belgium
    • Invention of the Belgian Flag
    • Invention of the Belgian Anthem
    • The role of art in the construction of a national identity
    • The role of school in the construction of a national identity
  • You can choose to work on your favorite topic using this board in order to register.
  • During this activity, if you need more information, it will be possible to ask your partners.

Don’t forget to ask your teacher for help if you need !
