This Lapbook is one of a kind! It's doesn't have page after page of blank inserts. ALL the inserts already have information in them for your students to read, learn, and review as they complete this project.
This Lapbook divides the Middle East into four regions: Persian Gulf, Arabian Peninsula, Anatolia, and Middle East. Each region has a booklet you print two sided with each country's name, flag and capital in it. Also included are fold-outs that describe and show a picture of some Middle Eastern landmarks and features.
Included is a blank printable map of the Middle East. Have your students color it and label with the country names, capitols, cities, mountain ranges, rivers or anything else you are teaching. You could also laminate this map so students can use it to quiz themselves with a dry erase marker.
In this Lapbook the regions are divided as follows:
United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait
Arabian Peninsula: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman
Anatolia: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Turkey, Syria
Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Iraq, Iran
Regional Features included are: Caucasus Mountains, Ural Mountains, ural River, Caspian Sea, Bosporus Strait, Black sea, Persian Gulf, Red Sea, Rub' al Khali desert, Tigris river, Euphrates River.
A note about this lapbook: Many of the countries listed in this lapbook are in a period of civil war and unrest. Every effort was made to include the most current and official flag and capital of the countries, but be aware that these may change. If a fact is no longer correct in this lapbook due to changes in politics in the Middle East, please personal message me to update the file rather than give a poor rating. Thank you for your understanding!
