Supplementary Activities & Videos to Learn About Palestine
Here are a few activities and videos to learn about Palestine from Palestinians. The purpose of this is NOT to explain the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but rather to hear from those with Palestinian heritage about their own culture, food, language, and more. I encourage you to also seek out many sources as you choose to learn about the history and challenges in the region.

If you’re interested in doing a further project, consider making Palestinian olive oil soap.
Palestinian Folk Dance
Dabke is a traditional Palestinian folk dance from the Levant region and serves as a history of Palestinian people and culture.
Traditional Palestinian Ataaba Music
“Traditional Palestinian songs have no set lyrics but rather a set rhythm. Ataaba is the most popular type of song in Palestine. It is often sung by farmers, workers, and shepherds as a work song. However, weddings are the main environment for the songs.” (Source)
I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about Palestine and its people during this month’s Global Children’s Book Club. Be sure to connect with us on Instagram for the read aloud, discussions, and cook along!
