Use Islamic empires, ch. 1-2
Choose any of the following items to complete for homework. Don’t spend more than 30 minutes!
- Pretend you are preparing for a journey to the Islamic empires. Draw the clothing you will take/wear. Below it, note why you will wear this clothing (nothing fancy).
- Make a cool grocery list for the market of food and drink items. Then make an un-list of things you must remind yourself NOT to buy tonight (maybe you can put a skull and cross bones on it!).
- Pretend you grew up back then. Give yourself an Arabian name and tell us about your family, school, marriage, and a holiday based on what you learned in your reading.
- Write a first-hand “pretend” journal entry as if you were a traveler back then. Talk about your camel ride, where you stayed, and how the country and city compared.
