We didn't get to it, but a book for this lesson would be Day of the Dragon King by Mary Pope Osbourne
Lesson 29 Mohammed and the Birth of Islam
For this lesson we talked about how Camels can walk on sand without sinking! You will need a bowl with sand and 2 pieces of card board circles cut out. One in the shape of a dime and the other about 2 inches around.
First, have them walk across the sand. See how our feed would sink.
Now try it with shoes on!
(He pushed down on it with a pencil eraser.) We still would sink.
Now, if we put on even bigger shoes,we won't sink. This is why camels have feet as large as a plate! They don't sink in the sand. this allows them to carry big loads and not sink in the sand like an automobile would!
We didn't get to this book yet either, but Seasons of the Sandstorm by Mary Pope Osbourne is on my list for this lesson.
Lesson 30 The Spread of Islam
Looking for flags of Islam today.
