Homework - 7th grade         
    Image result for middle east 
    The class is beginning to examine the Middle East and North Africa.  These two regions are linked together because they are similar in terms of geography (both are fairly arid) and they are similar culturally (the dominant language is Arabic and the dominant religion is Islam).  In this unit we will look at the development of Islam as a religion and how the Silk Road trade helped extend the religion through the region.  We will also look at some of the different cultural groups in the region.  The class has been presenting 4 cultural traits from their assigned country during the past week.  We will continue with the remainder next week.
