Product Description
Mansa Musa is still considered to be one of the wealthiest men in history. He was a great King, but his accomplishments and times are far from current popular awareness. I wrote “Jerboa’s Beautiful Tail” to introduce Mansa Musa and Western African History to young people. Because folk tales are so central to African cultures, I’ve used one for the structure of my story. Every good folk tale has a lesson and so does mine. I've added Common Core reading comprehension activities help you open this story for your students.

John Miller, my colleague of twenty-five years, and his students at Chalone Peaks Middle School made a Minecraft movie of this story as a class project. Here is the link: https://vimeo.com/111953099
John also has lesson plans for this project and will forward them to you.
