We also talked about important landmarks like the pyramids and river Nile in Egypt, Victoria Falls and Mount Kilimanjaro. Some older children made their own books of African animals or African landmarks. After talking about and looking at beautiful photographs of two ethnic groups that live in Africa, the Tuareg people and the Maasai people, the children were invited to make their own paper necklaces – a craft that was inspired by the pictures we have seen. We finished our study by cooking a West African couscous dish and sharing it as our Thanksgiving lunch.
In December we are going to talk about weather and explore and try our hand at modern art.
