This product is designed to give the teacher a break because all the work is done for you. You can sit back and relax and let this 440 slide power point teach 24 leaders in the Middle East for you. Keep learning fun while you play a game to keep your class engaged right up to that last bell. There is a test embedded within this slide show and eight different sets of game slides for drill and review. Encourage your students to do research on the 24 leaders and 22 countries presented in this product and report back to the class if you want to do a more comprehensive study. I have included a map of the Middle East as a bonus. This product’s main purpose is to turn your students on to the news and it is designed to motivate your class to spend the summer months keeping up with the news and hopefully they will return to school in the fall even smarter than they left. This product can be used again next year to go with your study of the Middle East or to enhance your current events program. Learning current events can improve background knowledge and thus improve test scores.
