Middle East and North Africa

This is a series of activities designed to introduce high school students to the geography, history, and religions of the Middle East/North Africa. The lesson requires the students to use technology to become actively involved in learning about the region.

Throughout history, the geography of the Middle East has been at the heart of many of its most critical political and cultural moments. An understanding of not only its present-day geography, but also its historical geography, is essential for any student eager to understand what’s going on in the region, and why.
