Bell Ringer: p. 387; Interpreting Maps
In Class: Today we passed out the tests we took on Friday and organized our binders. IF YOU WERE ABSENT FRIDAY and did not take the test, you need to see Mrs. Prosch about making up the test on or before Friday 2/24.
Students completed a bell ringer activity and we went over it as a class. We then began our new unit, “The Islamic World.” We discussed the geographical features of the Arabian Peninsula, then made a graphic organizer on Nomadic and Sedentary lifestyles. After going over information on these lifestyles as a class, we took notes on the beginnings of Islam. Students who were absent should see a classmate about getting today’s notes.

Bell Ringer: p. 392; Analyzing Visuals
In Class: Students completed a bell ringer activity. Students then took their 12.1 matching quiz and turned in their Section 1 Assessment with the quiz. We got into groups and each group was assigned one subheading from Section 2- “Islamic Beliefs and Practices.” Each group came up with 3-5 bullet notes to share with the class. After 10 minutes, we collaborated on a class google doc with notes for Section 2. We then worked on the Section Assessment for Section 2.
Students can access the google doc from class today on google classroom. Students who were absent can use this to study for the material that they missed.
