In this assignment, students are asked to create a map of countries that allow gay marriage and countries that do not allow gay marriage. Students are also asked to include map essentials, like a title, key, and compass. Finally, students are asked to complete a written response to reflect on this information.
This is a great assignment to teach about current day civil rights issues. I use it in my U.S. History Civil Rights unit on the 50s/60s to help students make connections to present day.
There is a list of countries that allow gay marriage provided.
