Each year our school celebrates Muslim Heritage month. We learn about important figures from the past and present who have made an impact on the world. I begin my unit by teaching my students about a few figures from history through a Powerpoint presentation and then we fill in facts about them in our interactive notebooks. Linked is the Powerpoint and the interactive notebook glue-ins for your students to add to their journals and fill after the presentation. My Islamic Studies classes are 30 minutes long so I do one person a day and fill in the information for that person as a class. There is also fun worksheets you can find from the 1001 Inventions website here! For my second graders I play the mini movie to excite them about the month. That video is found here!
Learning the fun way!
