Task 3: We will watch this video to introduce the topic of Muslim everyday life. This great video documents the life of a 16-year-old girl growing up Muslim in America.

Task 4: Open this presentation and your Islam/Muhammad notes. We are going to use this presentation to extract some information about the everyday lives of Muslims. Remember, anything you add to your notes should be in your own words.

Task 5: Make a copy of this double-bubble graphic organizer. With this, compare and contrast another belief system to Islam. For example, you can compare and contrast Christianity to Islam, or Judaism, Buddism, etc. Mr. Sanders will help you get this started.
