Islam Investigation! - Arabian Peninsula

Students investigate the history of the religion of Islam through a series of research and cross-curricular language arts and world geography activities on (our online classroom).  For each sub-standard of the Islam 7.2 state standard, students visit an interactive page that guides them through related web sites, videos, maps, and more!  Then, students use their learning to participate in message boards and debates within each page.  Finally, students are challenged to create a final piece of their learning for that standard that exemplifies what they have learned! See examples of the process and final pieces below for 7.2.1 standard on the Arabian Peninsula:
