We learned about the Rise of Islam. Through the gold rush in Saudi Arabia the religion of Islam was able to grow very quickly and unite the warring tribes of the Middle East. They raised a big army and started conquering land previously a part of the Roman Empire, mainly in the Middle East and North Africa. We completed a journal on the back of the map activity and traced the area of the empire on the map. We discussed the Golden Age of Islam and their many achievements. During the Dark Ages, Islamic scholars continued to push invention and innovation forward in major learning centers like Cordoba, Spain. We introduced the Viking tribes that will eventually rule Europe. We almost completed the Mankind worksheet.
