The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center offers a wide range of educational resources for teachers and students from K-12.
The Indian Ocean in World History website (IOW) is SQCC's flagship educational resource, and offers its signature maps, lesson plans, quizzes, trivia and much more free of charge and without the need to sign up. The website is interactive and features a map section with primary resource entries in categories of documents, travelers, routes, goods, technologies, objects, places, and geography. Visit the Indian Ocean in World History website today to start the adventure!
There are several lesson plans, quizzes, student guides, and teacher resources on the Indian Ocean History website. To access them, just go to the menu at the top right and select "Learning Tools." All of the Indian Ocean lesson plans are also available on this website, along with more lesson plans for use without the IOW -- all of which can be found in Downloadable Lesson Plans section, which will be updated throughout the summer, so please check back regularly!
SQCC is also proud to offer two craft activities for younger audiences. The first, in association with the Centre for Omani Traditional Dress is the "Flat Omani" project, which aims to educate younger audiences about traditional dress in Oman and the rest of the Arab world. This activity is recommended for younger Elementary ages. For more information, please email email@example.com. You can also visit the Centre for Omani Traditional Dress' website here.
The second craft activity is suitable for all ages 4 and up, and is the "Majmar" project.
