Travels of Ibn Battuta - A Virtual Tour with the 14th Century Traveler

Description: Ibn Battuta started on his travels when he was 20 years old in 1325. His main reason to travel was to go on a Hajj, or a Pilgrimage to Mecca, as all good Muslims want to do. But his traveling went on for about 29 years and he covered about 75,000 miles. Follow the footsteps of Ibn Battuta, the famous 14th century traveler. Along the way you will see many of the same sights that he saw. There will be many links to help you understand what he saw and activities to share this with others. There will even be links that bring you into "side trips" and enable you to see into the future - beyond the 14th century. Standards 7.2.4, 7.2.5 and 7.2.6
