This product has a 90 slide power point presentation that explains how important Yemen is to the safety of our country. It starts with the location of Yemen and discusses different geographical terms like; desert, strait, peninsula and gulf to review these terms with the class. The power point introduces the important events that have been happening in this region since January 2015. The purpose of this power point is to motivate your students to want to know more and to understand how important it is to keep up with current events. I believe the more one knows, the more they will want to know. Having a general knowledge of this region, will encourage your class to read and listen to the news. Hopefully, they will get their parents interested. This product comes with two articles with comprehension questions. This is a wonderful way to improve comprehension skills while learning about the Middle East. One article is about the fall of the government on January 22, 2015 and one is about the closing of the U.S. Embassy in Sana’s on February 10, 2015. These articles are current events, but they can be used as historical events later. The main idea is to encourage the class to bring in more current events as they happen in this region. I have also included a map activity on Yemen and the Arabian Peninsula. The comprehension sheets and map activities can be purchased separately.
