Unit Study on Iran

Learning about other cultures is important in our homeschool.  So far we have spent some time on the Arctic, Europe, and a couple years in Asia.  This year we are learning about the Middle East.  Our first stop in our studies is the country of Iran.  Because my boys are a bit older than my daughter, I’m doing the same study at two different levels.

The books listed as read alouds are ones where I read aloud some portions of the book, but mostly we talk about the book and discuss what we discover on the pages.

For 4th and 6th graders:
    1. Read aloud Iran: The Culture
    2. Read aloud Iran: The People
    3. Read aloud Iran the Land
    4. Watch Iran playlist from Youtube:
