Africa is a continent rich in resources and holds the world’s longest river, the Nile. We learned about this continent by reading A True Book – Africa by Mel Friedman, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters by John Steptoe, We All Went on Safari by Laurie Krebs, and Mama Panya’s Pancakes by Mary and Rich Chamberlin. The students used their weaving skills to create paper kente cloth and colorful necklaces similar to those worn in Africa. Everyone learned about the importance of using our resources respectful, so resources will be available for years to come. During siesta we are entering a fantasy world with James while reading James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl.
