Afghanistan Revealed - National Geographic Film

Last Friday I posted a link to a narrated Google Earth tour of Afghanistan. That tour included a brief history of Afghanistan prior to 2001, but was primarily focused on Afghanistan post September 11, 2001. Afghanistan Revealed was produced by National Geographic in 2001. The film explores the history of Afghanistan and the struggles of civilians against the Taliban. You can find the video embedded below or you can "snag" it from Snag Films.



Applications for Education
Afghanistan Revealed and the narrated Google Earth tour of Afghanistan are good resources for anyone that is teaching global current events right now as these resources may help students understand the recent election in Afghanistan.
