Food For Thought: Barely 2 generations ago, people in Qatar were living nomadic lives in the desert WITHOUT cell phones and GPS navigators. Describe what you think life would like if you lived in the desert 20 - 30 years ago. It would be really hot, it wouldn't be comfortable to live in, And it would be really hard to get water and food. The recorder should compile the ideas from the group to write a 5 sentence description.
Any other points.... It was really fun especially Mr. Isim's activity.
