This product contains access to a WEBSITE with 8 packed webpages and an entire unit on Islam and the Muslim Religion including the caliphates. It corresponds with the NYS social studies framework 6.4b, 6.6, 6.6c.
OK, OK.....enough for the serious stuff....this lesson is really AMAZING!!
The students work their way through each 'pillar' of knowledge within the website. Laying the Foundation, Arabian Peninsula, Mohammed, Mosques, Caliphates. Within each pillar is a 'choice' of activities that they can do that correspond with the category. Each activity is worth a certain number of caliphate 'coins' that the students earn. The coins actually represent the difficulty of the assignment
Embedded within the assignment are amazing digital tools...students learn how to 'snip', use scribble maps, use a digital timeline, use a digital venn diagram, use fodey generator, create with bubble.us, access padlet and MORE!!! The website also has video tutorials that correspond with the skills.
When you download this product, you'll get a link to the website and detailed instructions on this revolutionary way of teaching that your students will LOVE!!!
If you are an Edmodo or Google Classroom user you'll LOVE this approach!
Keep on ✨Using Your Smarticles!✨
