Expansion of Early Islamic Empire: Reading Like a Historian
The Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) has an excellent lesson on the spread of the early Islamic empire with primary documents. You can see the documents below but you should go to the SHEG site to download the teacher material.
If you have never used Stanford's resources, you should definitely check them out. Their documents are terrific and always include good scaffolding instructions.
For this lesson, students consider how the Islamic Empire spread.
