Product Description
African tribes developed an extensive collection of oral literature long before Muslim traders brought an emphasis on written records to the region. Even after that point, oral traditions were viewed as the more authentic “African” way and they persisted as the primary method of teaching morality, reasoning, debating skills, community values and African religious values to the young. Riddles are a popular form of the African oral tradition designed to improve reasoning ability. This lesson includes 25 African riddles to allow your students to experience this African cultural approach to teaching and literature.
