Iraq & Oil Production – Recommendation

I recently used the “Read a Pie Chart” handout found in lesson 2 here:

Thumbs Up Scholastic News In-depth: Rebuilding Iraq

It took 10-15 minutes to discuss the chart and the questions with a group of lower-level 11 and 12 year olds. It is best if you have a world map, or at least a map of the Middle East to go along with this.

Bill of Rights Worksheet

This goes along with a lesson on the Bill of Rights. The cloze/rebus activity includes the first letter of each correct answer, and the vocabulary list includes translations from English to French.
