The stans

  1. 1. Let’s meet the stans……. The suffix -stan (Persian: ـستان -stān) is Persian for "place of"or "country". 1) Discuss which stans you think are real and which are fake. 2) Write the ones you think are real on the whiteboards/ in your book. There are 5 real ‘stan countries’ from the list. Kyrgyzstan Derkaderkastan Tazbekistan Uzbekistan Kreplachistan Kazakhstan Kamistan Turkmenistan Franistan Tajikistan
  2. 2. The real ‘stans’ are:- Uzbekistan-meaning land of genuine men. Kyrgyzstan – meaning ‘land of mountaineers’. Tajikistan- meaning- land of people with crowns on their heads. Turkmenistan- means land of Turkmen Kazakhstan- meaning land of the independent and free in Turkish- a name given by the Cossack people years ago.
  3. 3. Task 1) Map the 5 ‘stan’ countries and their capital cities. 2)Label the Caspian sea. 3) Label the surrounding countries The 5 ‘Stan’ countries- KRYGYZSTAN TAJIKISTAN TURKMENISTAN UZBEKISTAN KAZAKHSTAN The 5 ‘Stan’ capital cities- BISHKEK TASHKENT ASTANA DUSHANBE ASHGABAT The neighbouring countries- RUSSIA CHINA PAKISTAN IRAN AZERBAIJAN

Major languages= Uzbek, Russian, TASK- MATCH THE LANGUAGES TO THE COUNTRY. WRITE THEM OUT AND LINK THEM TO YOUR MAP LIKE THIS:- ASTANA CASPIAN SEA BISHKEK TASHKENT DUSHANBE ASHGABAT
  5. 5. There are 5 ‘stans’: Until late in the 20th century, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan were all part of the former Soviet Union. They all became independent states (countries) in 1991 when the U.S.S.R. dissolved. Questions to complete- 1) The 5 stan countries used to be part of which country? 2) They all became independent countries in which year?
  6. 6. Which is the most powerful ‘stan’? In your group use the cards about each Stan to decide which Stan is the most powerful! FIRST! How to make your decision- use the evidence- 1) Rank each factor according to how useful it is in determining ‘power’ . 1. Population: 2. Area: 3. National dish/food: 4. Literacy rate: 5. Unemployment rate: 6. Population below poverty line: 7. Avg. life expectancy: 8. % malnourished: 9. Income (GDP per capita): 10. NATURAL RESOURCES: You should be able to JUSTIFY, give reasons fro your ranking order. YOU ARE GOING TO USE YOUR TOP 5 MOST IMPORTANT TO WORK OUT WHO HAS THE MOST POWER.
  7. 7. Instructions • Write your top 5 Factors into the correct spaces IN YOUR table (each write it but discuss as a group- all put the same information into your table). • Now place the cards in rank order (highest to lowest) for the first factor, so if your first factor is GDP how do you rank the ‘stans’? • The highest GDP ranks 5, the lowest ranks 1. MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR GDP SECOND MOST IMPORTANT NATURAL RESOURCES THIRD MOST IMPORTANT FOURTH MOST IMPORTANT FIFTH MOST IMPORTANT TOTAL FOR COUNTRY (ADD ALL NUMBERS FROM ABOVE ROWS TOGETHER) If you have non numerical data, think of a way to turn it into numerical data. Kazakhstan $14,100 Turkmenistan $9,700 Uzbekistan $3,800 Kyrgyzstan $2,500 Tajikistan $2,300 KAZAKHSTAN KRYGZSTAN TURKMENISTAN UZBEKISTAN TAJIKISTAN MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR 5 X5 = 2 X5 = 4 X5 = 3 X5 = 1 X5 =
  8. 8. • How could you rank natural resources? • Count up how many each nation has, the one with the most gets the highest rank, the least= lowest rank. • Can you rank national dish? How? • You could decide in your group how tasty each sounds- and award points- highest points = highest rank. • Make sure you rank properly- for unemployment rate and % malnourished lower numbers are worth higher ranks!!!!
  9. 9. KAZAKHSTAN KRYGZSTAN TURKMENISTAN UZBEKISTAN TAJIKISTAN MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR X5 = X5 = X5 = X5 = X5 = SECOND MOST IMPORTANT X4 = X4 = X4 = X4 = X4 = THIRD MOST IMPORTANT X3= X3= X3= X3= X3= FOURTH MOST IMPORTANT X2= X2= X2= X2= X= FIFTH MOST IMPORTANT X1= X1= X1= X1= X1= TOTAL FOR COUNTRY (ADD ALL NUMBERS FROM ABOVE ROWS TOGETHER)
  10. 10. So which is the best? • Which stan did each group vote as the most ‘powerful’? Full order? • Which factors did they use? • Have any groups got different results? • Why? • Write a paragraph in your book to explain your results.
