This PowerPoint addresses several issues dealing with water in the Middle East. They are the importance of water, effects of drought, situations leading to conflict/cooperation when dealing with water sources, water shortage solutions such as irrigation and desalination, and more. Several suggestions for questions to ask your students are embedded throughout the PowerPoint. I have also left many teaching notes in the notes section of several slides. Two suggested assignments are also included that allow for interactive learning to take place.
The preview slides do not go in order and are just a sample of what you would get from this lesson.
As always, the entire PowerPoint is completely editable to meet your individual classroom needs. This lesson took me two days to complete in class.
