PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Word sort activity using loan words "borrowed" from African languages.

This product provides students studying African cultures or history with an opportunity to build on their background knowledge about English words they may or may not know which derive from African languages such as Wolof, Swahili, Xhosa, Bantu, Igbo, Fula, or Zulu. This product might be especially useful during February to raise awareness about Black History Month and highlight some of the cultures of the ancestors of many of today’s African Americans. This activity could also be used at any time during the year in an English/Language Arts classroom to develop English vocabulary (because all the words are also used in English) or a Social Studies/History unit or in an African studies course. This activity could easily be used as substitute plans. An ESL class might also enjoy this activity, especially if it has students from African countries.

Pages include one page of headers, one page of words to sort (36 words total), two pages of a student self-assessment to also record definitions or guesses, an answer key, a skeleton lesson plan outline for a substitute, and a how-to page. Cover page and credits/thank-you not included in page count.
