The purpose of this unit is to help students from the beginning of their education to become aware of how much man is dependent upon the resources of his environment and how God has helped to provide those resources throughout human history. The unit focuses on various cultures for which the Salt Trade guided their development and growth. It also looks at the properties of salt, why it is vital to humans, and how it has affected human history throughout the Bible and beyond. By the end of the unit, the students will gain an appreciation for the various cultures which evolved from the Salt Trade, a respect for the interdependence between the human race and the world around us, and an understanding for the importance of applying Bible verses to our daily lives.
