Product Description

Celebrate a wedding in South Africa!

Typically, this product has been taught to younger children, but older children will love this as well, especially as a fun craft supplement to African, or specifically South African, studies in middle and high school.

SOUTH AFRICA: Weddings (38 pages total) includes lessons with PowerPoint images you can show as you teach:

South Africa – the Rainbow Nation

Daniel’s Story – a fun look at a South African wedding through the eyes of our groom, Daniel

Ndebele Bridal Dolls (art project with 2 levels of instruction, one for grades K-2 and one for grades 3-6)

Materials needed for the craft include an empty water bottle, a black cocktail napkin, 2 colorful lunch napkins, pony beads, a gold pipe cleaner, white acrylic paint (one 2-oz. bottle from Michael's should be enough for an entire class; wait for the 40% coupon to make it really inexpensive), markers, and liquid glue. Heads are stuffed with the insides of a pillow (1 pillow is about $3 from Walmart or Target and is enough for an entire class). Glue and paint applied using q-tips from the Dollar Tree.


The First South Africans! The San People! Includes Cave Art Project which features a fun look at the San community, considered the first people on earth!


This is part of a bundled unit called Celebrations Around the World! which features celebrations in 5 countries: Italy, India, Turkey, Japan, and South Africa!


"In my nearly 30-year career in education, I have never seen children so engaged in their learning! International Travel Academy is truly a multi-disciplinary approach that enables children to explore the world in an unforgettable way. Students get a real sense of what it means to respect another country's heritage, beliefs and ways of living, thus making them more tolerant and internationally-minded. I highly recommend this program to educators and parents wishing to make learning come to life!"

– A Former Assistant Superintendent at Atlanta Public Schools

“(The five-day program) has given our school the unique opportunity to provide students with incredible experiences that align so well with our IB focus. Each spring with family and community support, our school essentially is transformed into our country of study for one full week. Teachers are easily able to follow the daily curriculum and activities provided, and the students truly enjoy this special week of instruction. From the art projects to festive food tastings, cultural dress, music, dance and traditions, the students spend this entire week engaged in new and exciting experiences of a new country. I would encourage all schools (IB, or not) to jump in and make a week like this happen for their students. It is incredibly gratifying to spend this week with kids as they come together to learn and share experiences like these across grade levels, school-wide. When we hear such rich discussion in classrooms and read their detailed writing about what they've learned as part of (the) week, it makes all the preparation, planning and expense totally worth it!! “
