PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The following 75-minute, common core aligned lesson/worksheet/PowerPoint bundle focuses on an overview of the West African trading empires of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai. This lesson typically follows the African Geography lesson I have available for purchase on TPT. The worksheet includes a variety of student-centered activities designed to develop critical thinking skills and foster class discussion. Several activities include:

• Do now - Primary source reading with questions – perfect for discussion.
• Primary and secondary source readings on each of the major West African Empires (Ghana, Mali, and Songhai) with brief focus on Mansa Musa and Ibn Battuta. Includes many critical thinking questions and writing opportunities.
• Includes link to “historyteachers” music video on Mansa Musa. – Kids love them!
• Answer the aim.
• Fill-in-the-blank notes (with answers)

This lesson also includes a brief 8 slide PowerPoint presentation that includes maps, photographs, the aim questions, and the fill-in-the-blank notes.

This lesson can easily be modified to fit a longer or shorter class period. Please follow me to receive notifications when new products become available. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Please rate this worksheet! Thanks!
