Golden Age of Islam Lesson Plans

Original price was: $35.00.Current price is: $15.00.

The Golden Age of Islam lesson plans are for grades 1-12 and span 12 weeks. Each week is a two-page spread which includes opening activity suggestions, main lesson block content (books), hands-on activities, geometry lessons, and recipes. Each book includes a grade level (or levels) it’s suitable for though you may find that your student is better suited with a different book.

I include the lesson plans for all grades together so you can mix and match which books you wish to use. Many books can be found at the library, but if not, you can swap out a resource for something you have available.

Most resources are for all audiences except for some resources which are written by Muslims for a Muslim audience. I do believe that those resources are still valuable for all audiences though there may be Arabic text that is not translated. The lesson plans go into more detail.

These lesson plans include many resources for the high schooler. While we have read through many of the resources suggested, there are some we have not read yet. There may be resources suggested that turn out to be subpar additions to this unit. You can find a a review of these materials on the blog post for our Golden Age of Islam unit. Additional projects and recipes can be found on the blog post as well.

Lesson plans are a total of 30 pages. The first 4 pages explain how to use the lesson plans. The next 24 pages are the 12-week lesson plans and the final 2 pages are notes and book list pages where you can organize and personalize your lessons plans.

Lesson plans are set for a 5-day week, with spaces available to fill in day and date.

Welcome to the Lesson Plans for The Golden Age of Islam Unit Study. When we initially decided to broaden our European Middle Ages main lesson block, we didn’t realize that it would become a 4 year extension! So far, what began as our Silk Road unit became multiple units as each subject area became its own unit. Currently we have units for The Silk Road, Ancient China, Mongolia, West Africa and The Travels of Ibn Battuta.

When putting together these lesson plans, I realized I had far too broad a range of books than could be contained in a short unit study dedicated to a 3-4 year grade range.  Usually I am able to create lessons which work for multiple grades and student interests. This unit, however, includes material that’s best suited for high school level and adult so it doesn’t easily work for all grades.

To accommodate the material and grade range, I’ve made this unit 12 weeks long which would be best implemented in 3-4 week blocks throughout 3-4 times in a year or over multiple years in conjunction with other history lessons. 

I’ve also included all the materials (books and kits), tutorials, projects and recipes for all 12 grades so you can mix and match the books and lessons you wish to use.

If books or kits are not available or you have other materials you wish to use, please make adjustments as you see fit. These lesson plans may be used as a guide for inspiration rather than a rigid course of lessons. Setting up the lessons in a weekly manner allows for flexibility in how you wish to do the lessons and in which order. The grade range offered is my own estimation, but you will find that your student doesn’t fit that range and you may wish to provide other lessons or modify the materials suggested.
