With Iran in the news, this would be an excellent opportunity to introduce young people to the country of Iran. Included is cultural, historical and current events. There are 10 web questions, a map activity, a Did You Know section? Comprehension/Discussion questions and a teacher page with 8 extension activities and the keys(map questions, web quest and comprehension questions).
The preview shows the entire resource which doesn't come with all the pencil illustrations. :-)
