Ms. Jan Evans brought her recent experiences from Tanzania to her Grade I students, who have been studying African’s land, animals and people. The educational unit included researching African animals, learning African songs and games, creating a rainforest and taking a virtual safari trip to Kenya. Most recently, the girls put the finishing touches on their African dolls, jewelry and “lappas” (African dresses) – for which they created unique prints of the animal they had researched. The unit will culminate with an African feast, where the students wear their lappas and have an authentic African experience, complete with food, songs and games.
