In 2010, I spent the summer on an island off the coast Kenya volunteering along side marine biologist. After that, I explored Kenya by land on safari. This lesson is one of many I created after that summer.
This Common Core lesson combines Science, Language Arts and Art. Students will:
Learn basic Swahili
Learn the science behind what makes sunsets orange.
Read, "The Elephant's Child" by Rudyard Kipling and answer Common Core aligned comprehension questions.
Create an African sunset scene using water colors.
The product is great for display, especially during Open House!
