The Spread of Islam

Between 600 and 1200, Islam provided a powerful force of unity, eventually linking lands from Spain to Iran. Islam became established in many lands. Work with a team to create maps and charts showing countries where Muslims live in our world.

Using the Internet or almanacs, do research to find the countries in which Islam is practiced today.

  • Using a world map, identify by colors the countries of the world where Muslims can be found as a part of the culture. Devise a color code that shows countries where Islam spread between 600 and 1200.
