In the news, our students hear about "the Arab world," "the Middle East," "the Muslim world," and "southwest Asia." What do these terms mean? And why do they sometimes appear to be used interchangeably?
Which countries belong within each regional term? How are the regions different and how are they the same? This activity leads students to analyze the characteristics of each country and to determine which category or categories apply to each.
This lesson lays groundwork for students' understanding of the complex relationships these countries have with one another.
The file includes charts in PDF format (in case they are a problem for you in Word format), the same in a Word document (which enables you to edit it if you wish), the lesson plan (including anticipatory activity and assessment questions), a PowerPoint to use with students to guide them through the lesson (including notes at the bottom of the PowerPoint pages to guide you in how to use specific slides), and a PowerPoint I used to train teachers on this lesson plan.
I saw your store on the home page of Teachers Pay Teachers; so, I thought I would look at your freebie. Here are a few suggestions that might help you to better market your products.
Add a cover page for each of your products which can then be used as an attractive thumbnail to entice buyers. Make sure you have at least two thumbnails for your product so buyers get an idea of what they are purchasing. I thought your preview was excellent.
You might also add a second page which is a directions or suggestions page for the teacher. (How do? Why? Etc.) List several ways you use this product in your classroom. Never assume that a buyer knows how, why, or when to use your product.
Use the footer to put the copyright symbol, your name and date of creation on EVERY page/slide. Items, especially free ones, have been "stolen" from TPT and posted on other sites to be sold. You have to protect all of your creations. Also number your pages/slides.
It is important that we see what others are doing; so, feel free to look at any or all of my freebies listed below. If you care to, a rating or any feedback you might have would be great.
