This file is a resource pack about how European partitioning in the Middle East following WWI led to regional conflict, as well as how land and religion plays a role in continuing conflicts in the Middle East (as outlined by the Georgia Standard of Excellence-- SS7H2). In the presentation notes, there are facts and images about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the division between Sunni and Shia Muslims, and Kurdish nationalism. There are also many useful graphic organizers and creative activities included in this file! You can choose to do them all, or pick the ones that best meet your students’ needs.
