Day 94: How Do Ideas Spread? (2/2/12)

Standard: 7.2.4 Discuss the expansion of Muslim rule through military conquests and treaties, empha­sizing the cultural blending within Muslim civilization and the spread and acceptance of Islam and the Arabic language.

Aim: The historians of 2017 will be able to summarize why and how ideas, and in this case religions, spread.

2. You will have some time to finish up your maps from yesterday. After you finish your map showing the spread of Islam, embed it into your history portfolios. Here is a video if you need help embedding it.

3. We are going to take our geography map tests here. To prepare for the test, why don't use one of these NEW games to study:

Europe (requires your headphones)
South America (requires your headphones)

4. You're going to have time with the people at your table to come up with an argument for why/how ideas spread. After we finish sharing, you are going to create a Tumblr post where you explain your opinion for how ideas spread.

5. Because Friday is a department day, we will watch Thursday's episode of CNN Student News.
