Today we are going to work with a new THINKING ROUTINE. It is called THE MISTERY QUESTION. You have to think on what we learnt the last lesson: THE VISIGOTHS. Once you have in mind you have to create a question that maybe one of your partners could not understand. The teacher will try to answer and explain better that points.
Once we have solved all the questions and everything is clear we are going to watch a video to learn a bit more about AL-ANDALUS. Pay attention because at the end of the video you have to answer the following question:
- Where did the first Muslim enter through to start the conquest of Spain?
