Description:

Students will explore a key 20th century boundary decision, the partition of Palestine by the United Nations in 1947. In the lesson, they will role-play membership in a special U.N. commission established to determine boundaries for a Jewish state and an Arab state in the former British Mandate of Palestine. The students must consider a number of variables in making boundary decisions. These include Jewish and Arab population distribution, location of Jewish-owned land, physiographic features, and climate.
