An alternative to the map quiz: Artful map of Afghanistan and neighbors

Consider the learning styles that you may employ: does an art project bring you as much learning as does the traditional memorization quiz?
There's no easy answer and each student must answer that question for himself, but this is the time of your life to try the options.

An experiment: you may choose to sketch borders and add 6 identifications to the map quiz on
Af ghan i stan
on Thurs or you may choose to do homework of an artful map of the nation and neighbors.

- Title: Between Persia and India: Afghanistan
- colored borders
- nations
- major cities
- compass rose
- simple but decorative border.
- illustrations such as Arab dhow and flag.

Also be ready for a 12-question open notes quiz on the Holy Land similar to the last one we assayed.
- neatness and spelling!
