Use these sources to find information to compose your country's position on refugees. Remember that you need to read to learn about refugees around the world and how your country is affected. Keep track of your sources!
REMEMBER: WHEN LOOKING AT DATA, YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND IF THE NUMBERS ARE REFERRING TO REFUGEES FLEEING THEIR COUNTRY, OR FINDING ASYLUM IN A HOST COUNTRY.
For example, Pakistan hosts the largest number of refugees in the world-- about 1.7 million, while Afghanistan produced the largest number of refugees, about 2.7 million.

Country Comparison Project

Middle East Map Work
Mr. Cook (your substitute) will give you a map and a list of countries. You can use the Upfront magazines that you used for the country comparison project and/or the internet to find where the countries are. Label each country and body of water on the list. The Middle East is a region that is defined differently by different sources. For our class it will include Western Asia and Northern Africa.
When you finish with your map you can check out these two map sites and practice learning the countries. They don't match up exactly with your map, but will be still useful study tools.
