 Global Regents Review Sheet

 

 

The Irish famine had a lack of taters, Simon Bolivar was the Liberator.
Gandhi was a passive guy, the Germans hated the Treaty of Versailles.
Germany became a unified nation, Toussaint was a happenin' Haitian.
Abraham was the father of the Jews, in India they pray to Vishnu.
Things You Might Find in History, World History

Edison got people out of the dark, for Blood and Iron remember Bismarck. Caesar got stabbed by a lot of knives, Henry VIII had a lot of wives.  Let them eat cake as a meal, French malcontents stormed the Bastille. French Revolution left Jacobins dead, even Robespierre lost his head. Things You Might Find in History, World History

Picasso was artistic, Christianity is monotheistic. Ramadan is a month long fast, Buddhists follow the Eightfold Path. Louis XIV was the Sun King, Confucianism was practiced by the Ming. Jews don't eat pork, they find it vile, predictable is the flooding of the Nile. Things you might find in History, World History.


Chinese trade on the silk road, eye for an eye in Hammurabi's Code
Marco Polo discovers rotelli, The Prince was written by Machiavelli.
Meiji Restoration modernized, Peter the Great had Romanov ties.
Native American anasazi, Pearl Harbor and kamikazes.
Things You Might Find in History, World History.


Serfs and knights in feudalism, Mao brings China Communism.
Samurai warrior sharpened a blade, black rings, red spots form the black plague. Boris Yeltsin was a boosin, you call him Genghis Khan I call him Temujin. Saladin vs. Lionheart in the Crusades, Israel beats Egypt in just six days. Things You Might Find in History, World History
 

BIG FINISH!

Muhammad's preaching in Arabia, cuneiform writings in Mesopotamia.
KGB was the secret police, Pax Romana, is the Roman peace.
Near water is where people live, Greece and Rome gave us Western Civ. Don't forget about nationalism, militarism, or imperialism.
Imperialists are rotten to the core, ask those  who died in the Boer War. The Sepoys found their gunpowder gross, Mansa Musa's off the African coast. Enlightenment was a forward looking time, Rasputin looked like Frankenstein. Hitler took the Sudetenland, Princip assassinated Ferdinand. Appeasement means give them what they want, WWI's Allies were the Entente. Sparta had an oligarchy, the Magna Carta limited the monarchy. Jesse Owens runs his dash, Hitler's angry and twirls his mustache. Blitzkriegs near the Eiffel tower, Churchill stood tall in his finest hour. Germany was in constant debt, Yalta's where the Big Three met. Eisenhower went on a Normandy tour, Axis lost the Second World War. Marshall Plan was a large payment, Truman preached for containment. Westernization means open a mall, Berlin put up then tore down a wall. South Africa had a racial divide, to sell bumperstickers they called it apartheid.
Freedoms in China didn't seem fair, that didn't stop Tiananmen Square. Green Revolution created a feast, there's still a conflict in the Middle East. Whether it be Bush, Clinton or Reagan, no peace has happened there since Menachem Begin. Global economy with limitations, there's still a lack of developed nations

There's nothing really left to tell, except in the end Saddam's statue fell. Things You Might Find in History, World History

Original (in class) lyrics for the Regents Exam
 

Listen my students it’s time to cram, so we can do well on the state exam.

This idea might bring you to tears, considering this test covers two years.

Let’s go back to last September, to find out what you remember.

I know this course seems very long, to make things simple sing my song.

These are things, you might find on the Regents. On your Regents.

Whichever answer you’re a choosin, odds are the case it’s cultural diffusion.

If you want to get a stellar grade, people live near water for farming and trade.

Things you might find on the Regents.

 

The Irish famine had a lack of taters, Simon Bolivar was the Liberator.

Gandhi was a passive guy, the Germans hated the Treaty of Versailles.

Germany became a unified nation, Toussaint was a happenin Haitian.

Abraham was the father of the Jews, in India they pray to Vishnu.

Things you might find on the Regents.

 

Edison got people out of the dark, for Blood and Iron remember Bismarck.

Caesar got stabbed by a lot of knives, Henry VIII had a lot of wives.

Let them eat cake as a meal, French malcontents stormed the Bastille.

French Revolution left Jacobins dead, even Robespierre lost his head.

Things you might find on the Regents. 

Picasso was artistic, Christianity is monotheistic.

Ramadan is a month long fast, Buddhists follow the Eightfold Path.

Louis XIV was the Sun King, Confucianism was practiced by the Ming.

Jews don’t eat pork, they find it vile, predictable is the flooding of the Nile.

Things you might find on your Regents.

Chinese trade on the silk road, eye for an eye in Hammurabi's Code
Marco Polo discovers rotelli, The Prince is written by Machiavelli.
Meiji Restoration modernized, Peter the Great had Romanov ties.
Native American anasazi,
Pearl Harbor saw kamikazes.
Serfs and knights in feudalism, Mao brings China Communism.
Samurai warrior sharpened his blade, black rings and red spots from the black plague.
Boris Yeltsin was a boosin, you call him Ghengis Khan I call him Temujin.
Salidin vs. Lionheart in the Crusades,
Israel beats Egypt in just six days.
Muhammad's preaching in
Arabia, cuneiform writings in Mesopotamia.
KGB was the secret police, Pax Romana, the Roman peace.
Near water is where people live,
Greece and Rome gave us Western Civ.

Don’t forget about nationalism, militarism, or imperialism.

Imperialists are rotten to the core, ask the many who died in the Boer War.

The Sepoys found their gunpowder gross, Mansa Musa’s off the African coast.

Enlightenment was a forward looking time, Rasputin looked like Frankenstein.

Hitler took the Sudetenland, Princip assassinated Ferdinand.

Appeasement means give them what they want, WWI’s Allies were the Entente.

Sparta had an oligarchy, the Magna Carta limited the monarchy.

Jesse Owens runs his dash, Hitler’s angry and twirls his moustache.

Blitzkriegs near the Eiffel tower, Churchill stood tall in his finest hour.

Germany was in constant debt, Yalta’s where the Big Three met.

Eisenhower went on a Normandy tour, the Axis lost the Second World War.

Marshall Plan was a large payment, Truman preached for containment.

Westernization means open a mall, Berlin put up then tore down a wall.

South Africa had a racial divide, to sell bumperstickers they called it apartheid.

Freedoms in China didn’t seem fair, but that didn’t stop Tiananmen Square.

Green Revolution created a feast, there’s still conflict in the Middle East.

Whether it be Bush, Clinton or Reagan, nothing’s happened there since Menachem Began.

Global economy with limitations, there’s still a lack of developed nations

There’s nothing really left to tell, except in the end Communism fell.

Things you might find on the Regents.
