Qatar History and Desert Bundle

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won't last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.
