UPDATED! This is a complete 15 day unit for the study of the Middle East in a Geography or other Social Studies course.
Includes a unit/lesson plan, student-centered activities, learning centers, online interactives, all student materials, and more.
Unit covers the physical geography of the Middle East with mapping and atlas investigation activities, the human geography and a cultural study through the use of news articles from Middle Eastern outlets, a study of the regions of the Middle East through visiting centers or a response group activity, and an online interactive investigation on the Environment of the Middle East.
All activities are student-centered and require higher-order thinking skills. Students will also practice basic geographic and social studies skills throughout the unit. Reading and collaborative group assignments will help with student literacy and the unit will address most state and the national standards.
A teacher unit plan is provided with daily suggestions for bell ringers, homework, and exit slips.
An end of the unit assessment is included, requiring students to make decisions about the culture of the Middle East and to prioritize significant information to create an online collage with an essay option. Unit project could easily be adapted to use without online access.
A complete Unit Test is also included with multiple choice, response, and mapping. A study guide accompanies the test for student preparation.
Teacher directions are also provided, as well as ALL student and activity materials. Many of the student handouts include graphic organizers and wrap-up questions to help students better prepare for assessments.
A complete answer key is included for the unit test, but most other activities are open-ended responses and do not have specific answer keys. If you need any assistance with these answers, please contact me!
