All About the Middle East


In our All About the Middle East lesson plan, students learn all about the Middle East, including its history, its people, and its culture. Students also learn to locate it on a map.


Our All About the Middle East lesson plan introduces students to the Middle Eastern region of the world. Students may be familiar with the Middle East but may not have much knowledge of the region, the countries, people, attractions, and other information about the continent. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to research a middle eastern country, assigned by their teacher, and create a poster advertising it, which they then present to the class. Students are also asked to list the 22 countries of the Middle East using the first letter of each country.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to locate the Middle East on a map, list some of the countries and characteristics of the Middle East, and explain some of its history.
