Explore Morocco

Hi there, I’m Heidi Raki of Raki’s Rad Resources.  Heidi Befort has graciously invited me to do a series of posts for you on using research books to explore different countries.  Since, I’m currently living in Morocco, I decided to start there!

Here’s a little information about Morocco:

- Morocco is a small country in North Africa.  Ancient Ruins of Chellah in Rabat, Morocco

- There coastline of Morocco runs along the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.

- French and a dialect of Arabic (called Darija) are spoken by the majority of Moroccan citizens.

- Islam is the main religion of Morocco.

- The biggest cities of Morocco are: Casablanca, Fes, Marrakesh and Rabat.

- Couscous is the most common dish, and is served with seasonal vegetables, on Fridays after families go to Mosque.morocco1

If you would like to teach your kids about Morocco, you can use this Free Research Book that you can download from Google Docs to help them explore some key facts about Morocco.

I’ll be back next week as part of this ‘Learning About Countries Through Research Books series” with information about Egypt.  In the mean time, please feel free to stop by my blog, Raki’s Rad Resources, for more quality teaching tips and resources.
