K.I.S.S. (Keep It Social Studies) wants to provide you with basic tools to introduce students to various social studies topics. This viewing guide is designed to touch on essential terminology dealing with Islam. This fill-in activity follows John Green's Crash Course World History: Episode 13 in order and the sentences are word-for-word. There are two copies on one printout so it is economical, but you will have to cut.
Crash Course World History: Episode 13- In which John Green teaches you the history of Islam, including the revelation of the Qu'ran to Muhammad, the five pillars of Islam, how the Islamic empire got its start, the Rightly Guided Caliphs, and more. Learn about hadiths, Abu Bakr, and whether the Umma has anything to do with Uma Thurman (spoiler alert: it doesn't). Also, learn a little about the split between Sunni and Shia Muslims, and how to tell if this year's Ramadan is going to be difficult for your Muslim friends.
