Islam: Growth & Spread of Islamic Civilizations PowerPoint

This PowerPoint covers Islam's growth across the Middle East after the death of the prophet Muhammad. Each visually-engaging slide includes simple notes for students to better understand the essential information. 

An editable guided notes worksheet is also included in this download! 

Each of these topics are discussed in the PowerPoint: 
  • Abu Bakr and The 4 Rightly Guided Caliphs
  • The Sunni-Shi'a split
  • The geography of the Arabian Peninsula and Islam's growth
  • Reasons for the growth of Islam
  • Effects of Islam's spread
  • Important vocabulary
  • Plus more! 
This is an excellent and even-handed overview of Islam's growth for the 100+ years after Muhammad's death in 632. I have fine tuned it over years with my World History classes and students are consistently engaged during the presentation. The guided notes page is also an excellent tool to keep students focused on your key points and not be overwhelmed with writing notes. 

A similar PowerPoint on the founding and early years of Islam can be found here.

Thanks so much for looking!
