Qatar History And Citizenship - Year 4 - 39 Weekly Lesson Plans And Worksheets

Qatar History And Citizenship - Year 4 - 39 Weekly Lesson Plans And Worksheets

Qatar History and Citizenship is a compulsory subject for any primary school teacher in Qatar. When I taught this subject in Qatar, I was surprised to discover how thin the student text book was, how little resources were available for students on the Internet and that there was no teacher guide to help teachers effectively teach this subject. This Year 4 teaching pack contains lesson plans and additional worksheets to support 39 weekly lessons. These lessons cover all a student needs to know about the subject, and the lessons are designed to motivate and excite a student's interest in the history around them. These worksheets could be printed out and used as workbooks in the classroom, sent home as additional homework or shared via an interactive whiteboard. *** Please note that these resources are designed to be used with the official text book, not as a replacement. ***

Crash Course World History Worksheets Episodes 16-20

Crash Course World History Worksheets Episodes 16-20

Teach with Humor using World History Crash Course! Few classroom strategies are as successful as this simple approach: make learning fun! That, or course, is easier said than done, but when it comes to teaching history contents, the YouTube series Crash Course World History is a great place to start. The script of each episode is packed with humorous observations about life and culture -- ones that help to make strong points about the history being communicated. Just as importantly, the host, John Green, has what it takes to keep students' interest: enthusiasm about the topics, a quirky way with props, and a funny, sometimes deadpan delivery of content. Students like watching the series, which means they pay attention to it and learn! Each episode of Crash Course contains about 10 minutes of content plus a brief time for the credits. Episodes are available for free on YouTube at the following playlist: Crash Course World History If you are new to Crash Course, I encourage you to watch a few videos as soon as you can. I expect you'll be just as enthusiastic about the classroom possibilities as I am! About These Worksheets Each worksheet focuses on a single episode of Crash Course World History and typically contains between 10 and 20 items for students to complete. Worksheets are formatted to fit on one page for easy copying and a detailed answer key is provided for each episode. TIME STAMPS OPTION TO HELP STUDENT AND TEACHER INCLUDED FOR ALL EPISODES! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ EPISODES INCLUDED IN THESE CRASH COURSE WORLD HISTORY WORKSHEETS This resource includes a worksheet, a time-stamped worksheet, and a detailed answer key for episodes 16 - 20 of Crash Course World History: • Mansa Musa and Islam in Africa -- also does a great job covering diversity of African civilizations of the period • The Mongols: Genghis Khan and more • International Commerce and the Indian Ocean Trade • Venice and the Ottoman Empire • Russia, the Kievan Rus, and the Mongols ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ All questions are presented in video order so that students can easily follow along, but these worksheets are not mere outlines that merely ask students to generate their own notes.

Mankind the Story of All of Us Episode 6 Worksheet and Quiz: Survivors

Mankind the Story of All of Us Episode 6 Worksheet and Quiz: Survivors

56 Multiple Choice Questions to accompany Episode 6 of Mankind: The Story of All of Us Mankind: The Story of All of Us is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the humanity in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episode 6: “Survivors," which develops three major stories: • The Salt Trade in the Sahara • The Gold Trade in Mali • Learning and Knowledge in Timbuktu • Venice as a Banking Powerhouse • The Renaissance • The Chinese Inventions of Gunpowder and Guns • The Defeat of the Mongols; The Ming Dynasty • Gutenberg and the Printing Press • Christopher Columbus • The Spanish Reconquest / Defeat of the Moors Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap. ABOUT THIS TEACHING PACKET I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video: • The student viewing worksheet has 46 multiple choice questions, all presented in video order. These questions are fairly detailed. Certainly, many students will have good enough recall to be able to complete the worksheet after the episode has been shown, but because of the detailed nature of the questions, some teachers may want to use the worksheet as a “during-viewing” activity that will help students track information and stay on task . • The 10-question test, on the other hand, is designed to help students synthesize the episode’s information and see larger patterns that span different sections of it. My intent when writing the test was to focus solely on the “big issues” that arise from the targeted time span of world history. Students who have paid attention to the video should definitely have mastered these basic, fundamental issues from the targeted time period. All test questions are also multiple choice. • A fast-grade answer key is provided for both the worksheet and the quiz. MORE DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES Because the worksheet and test take different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction by using them as basic/advanced levels!

The Saxon Times takes the form of a series of pages from a contemporary newspaper, reporting on events as they unfolded and appeared to contemporary people, and a selection of excerpts from the book are now available as a class resource from the author, David Clarke. The Saxon Times aims: • to inspire curiosity to know more about the past • to increase knowledge and understanding about 1066 • to understand how people’s lives have shaped the nation The Saxon Times will: • identify the significant events of 1066 • help develop perspective and argument • help weigh the available evidence • includes topical advertisements and by lines, such as ‘Ask Brother Ealdred’ and ‘The Food Section’, that provide humour, insight and help promote interest in life at the time. • Help understand the complexity of people’s lives and the relationships between different groups This set of seven A3 posters to download reflect on: • the death of King Edward the Confessor, the candidates to the throne and the coronation of King Harold II • never trust a Norman • the traitor Tostig and Ask Brother Ealdred • Halley’s Comet • Norman fleet built and Tostig’s travels • Hasty Hardrada and the North for the Norse • the Battle of Stamford Bridge On publication, The Saxon Times will provide a complete account of the year 1066 and full background to these resources.

Silk Road Simulation in barter and trade

Silk Road Simulation in barter and trade

Silk Road: A simulation in barter and trade is a great addition to your study of the Silk Road and Marco Polo as well as for the Middle Ages. In this student-tested and approved hands-on trade simulation, students “travel” with Marco Polo on the Silk Road to Kashgar. Students take on the role of traders to explore the challenges of barter by exchanging goods on the Silk Road. Students practice non-verbal skills because of language barriers, a very real situation for many students. Students determine the economy i.e. they decide which goods are more valuable than others by determining trade prices. This lesson is one of several in a complete unit on Marco Polo and the Silk Road. This detailed teacher's plan includes: ● 4 Complete student handouts for launching a trade simulation ● 1 Complete teacher’s guide for teaching the trade simulation ● Full list of resources on teaching Marco Polo and the Silk Road ● References to additional lessons on the Silk Road to enhance the overall trade simulation This purchase is for one teacher only.
