Tonight I would like you to begin to learn about the ancient city of Timbuktu. In order for you to become familiar with the city of Timbuktu I have put together a video to get you started. While watching the video please take some notes. Remember that when taking notes it is important to identify the most important facts. Please do not write a summary for the video. These notes should be placed in you binder in the section labeled notes.
