Their next unit in Geography is on the Middle East. For my last day of student teaching, I made them a short video with some of my pictures from Israel, Jordan and Egypt to give them a feel for the Middle East.
I loved sifting through the pictures from my study abroad and remembering every beautiful street I walked on and all the amazing people I met.
I thought it would be fun to share the video I created. Since I made it for my class and wanted it to be educational, I chose Dave Matthew's song "Mother, Father" because the song refers to hatred and fighting that exists in a beautiful world. I thought it was a good teaching tool for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. However, if I had just made the movie for your viewing pleasure I would have picked a much more upbeat Middle Eastern song to match the pictures.
Anyways, here you go! Hope you like it :)
