Literature Unit - Stories from Africa and Asia (/Online)
by Kim A. Howe, M.S.
Experience the cultures of Africa and Asia through the eyes of a girl in Botswana and a Japanese girl living in Hiroshima after World War 2. Appreciate the lives of children across the world by examining similarities and differences. This unit provides an introduction to writing a formal report, explores story conflict, introduces haiku poems, and reviews verb tense.
This online unit is designed to be used in conjunction with the Africa and Asia social studies unit but can also be used as a standalone literature unit.
