In this unit, you'll explore the continent of Africa, learning about its geography, history, economic systems, political systems, and cultures region by region. Along the way, you'll create a beautiful map of Africa, keep a journal of current events from across the continent, and explore folktales from Africa.
Your final project will allow you to create a news report about Africa, either in the form of a newspaper or a broadcast. Alternatively, you can choose to create a lapbook about a country in Africa, sharing information about its history, economy, government, culture, and geography in creative ways.
The Age 11-13 social studies units utilize a Timeline of Ancient Civilization along with a stack of timeline cards to enhance your child's understanding of the
chronology of historical events. Cards are color coded so your child can easily see and compare what was happening in different
parts of the world at the same time.
