CGP Grey Explains the Relationship Between China, Hong Kong, and Macau

This week CGP Grey released a new video about another tricky topic in political geography, the relationship between China, Hong Kong, and Macau. The four minute video covers the origins of the political separation of Hong Kong and Macau from China (spoiler alert! it's imperialism) and current relationship between China, Hong Kong, and Macau. The driving question behind the video is, are Hong Kong and Macau countries? Watch the video to find out.

Applications for Education
Like other videos from CGP Grey, this video is a fast-paced introduction to the topic. It won't give your students all of the answers, but it could definitely spark questions from your students that you can then have them investigate as part of a larger lesson.
