Black History month is not only about celebrating black history, but it is also about celebrating all the cultures. In order to teach students to respect each other we must present them with knowledge about their own culture and cultures of others.
In this presentation students will have a chance to learn about a festival, a type of art, one type of food of Uzbekistan, a country located in the center of continent of Asia. They also watch a beautiful traditional music and dance performance by a ballet group Ofarin. The last part of of this presentation invites students to dance with the Orafin dance theatre actors, but it is in the form of a tutorial, so it is easy to follow.
Children will enjoy watching the beautiful dance and then trying some moves themselves. Multicultural learning and exercise!
I appreciate your feedback. If you do use this in your class, could you share with me how it went?
