Almost all of the national borders in Africa and the Middle East were established a century ago, by European powers that were more focused on politics than the welfare of the regions' inhabitants.
This two-part worksheet focuses on the decades before and after WWI, as old empires fall, new nations arise, and changes in global politics spark a variety of independence and anti-colonial movements.
Part One is a "Match-Em" exercise which identifies the major individuals, philosophies and movements responsible for nationalism's spread throughout Africa and the Near East.
Part Two features three short answer questions that are designed to deepen your students' understanding nationalism's rise throughout Africa and the Middle East.
Perfect as an in-class activity, take-home assignment or review sheet!
