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!

Notebooking Focus:
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.
