Learning About Morocco

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

Morocco was one of the countries that was ‘lighter’ for us, but it was nice to have a little bit of a break. We used the time to focus on several geography terms ~ strait {Strait of Gibraltar}, desert, mountains, coast, plateau, plain, valley. We also talked about the government in Morocco, read some great books about the country and made a very simple dish as our meal from Morocco.

You can view the other countries that we’ve studied from Africa on my geography page.

    I am doing a stall on Morocco for my child’s cultural awareness day – Thank you for the inspiration and material!

  4. If I may ask, what did you read while “in” Morocco for social studies? I’m called to missions, learning Arabic in school, and I LOVE Ismali (of, related to, or set in the Arabic-speaking world) books of ALL kinds! No one in the blogosphere has ever posted their booklist for ANY kind of Ismali social studies unit they’ve done- did you?
