This colorful and engaging Power Point presentation introduces Adinkra Cloth, the textile featured in The Talking Cloth by Rhonda Mitchell. The story is from the 3rd Grade HM anthology Theme 2, story 3.
The presentation shows the Adinkra cloth, it's original use (the dress of royalty) and its current availability in the markets of Ghana for anyone to purchase. It explains the symbolism of the background colors and of the individual stamps on the cloth. It shows the cloth being decorated.
This is a great powerpoint for a study of cultures in general, textiles in specific, and to accompany the story.
