PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This great mapping activity allows students to map the major physical and political locations within the Middle East. Just download the following blank map of the Middle East (Southwest Asia/North Africa).

Please download the Middle East map PDF at
http://geoalliance.asu.edu/sites/default/files/maps/MidEast.pdf

The mapping activity will take at least 1 period. Students just follow simple instructions to complete the map. The mapping activity can be easily modified by the teacher to work with any atlas or age level. My students enjoy this activity and it helps them remember the important features of the Middle East. The teacher should make at least four copies of the Middle East map for students.

The following information is covered in the mapping activity:

Countries of the Middle East
Capitals of the Middle East
Major Cities of the Middle East
Physical Features of the Middle East (Mountains, Rivers, Deserts, Major Bodies of Water, Etc)
Countries of the Middle East Quiz Answer Sheet (Easy to modify for your own geography questions)

The second lesson plan included is a research/presentation project about a Middle Eastern country.

Hall of Fame/Shame Countries of the Middle East Presentation

This project lets students research a country in the Middle East. Students will create a poster and perform a short presentation about their country. Students will make a decision about whether their country belongs in the Hall of Fame or Hall of Shame. Lastly, the teacher can have students take notes on the presentations for an open note quiz or test if the teacher chooses. Two different grading rubrics are included for the teacher and a student note sheet.
