A Five-Week Study That Takes You to the Vast and Vibrant Continent of Africa
Type of Resource: Short Culture, History & Geography Study
Target Grades: 2nd to 6th Grades
Pages: 168 Pages
Length of Study: 5 Weeks
Kids will love discovering this huge continent as they try out a variety of learning experiences. Kids will explore Africa and its traditions through cultural activities like creating a Zimbabwe kanga, learn Libyan meal manners, create a Kenyan shield, or play an African game like “Nyama, Nyama.” They’ll learn about African fables, become a field biologist on the savannah, or listen to Cameroonian music. But the highlight of this study are the Cultural Gatherings! Kids will love planning for several gatherings such as a Kenyan Galimoto Race or a Libyan Beachside Picnic, and try out Japanese dishes like couscous or chapatis!
All along the way, students will complete an open and go travel diary. The diary includes more content about Africa, drawings and interactive fun, cut-outs, native costume designs, and so much more that will help the learning really stick! It’s a great journey, and packed with family fun!
This study includes most of the reading you need for the study, an activity resource, a profile on an African child, a guide for planning the Cultural Gathering, the Travel Diary pages, and more! It is planned around a four-day week, to make it super easy to fit into a busy family’s schedule.
