PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Africa – African Safari - Geography

This is a great activity to introduce Africa. Take your students on an African Safari! What makes Africa diverse? Students will explore this question as they take an imaginary safari around the great continent of Africa in the “African Safari”. Students will begin the lesson with a preview assignment – which images best describe Africa? They will then grab a partner and go on a safari around Africa. Your kids will learn about the physical and human geography as they see images of the continent out of the “bus window”, and then make 2 different bus stops at different locations around the continent. At each bus stop, they will exit the bus, read information about their bus stop, and summarize what they have learned in a travel journal. They will conclude the activity writing a letter home discussing what makes Africa diverse.

When you purchase this activity you will receive:

-a presentation to use as your safari around Africa
includes amazing images of the people, geography and wildlife of Africa
-a script to read for each of the different images
- information to read for each of the images
-a graphic organizer to take notes
- a map of Africa for students to annotate with notes
-placards for 2 different bus stops - information for the students to read with detailed information on Africa
