What You’ll Receive
Of all the beasts in Africa, which do you think is the most dangerous to humans? That’s just one of many fascinating facts students will learn as they take a trip to Africa with an American couple. All the while, they’re learning about primary versus secondary sources.
• The bellringer introduces students to the subject through photographs with interesting (sometimes comical) facts about specific African animals.
• Through the video, an American couple takes students to Africa for a look at elephants, lions and giraffes in their natural habitats. Find out why water buffalo can be so terrifying. Watch a seemingly endless parade of elephants. Learn about how animals communicate with each other in a place where the people are also keenly in tune with nature.
• Through the PowerPoint presentation, students learn or review the difference between primary and secondary sources. They’ll analyze quotes, a video, photographs and written texts to determine whether they are primary sources or secondary sources.
• The worksheet requires students to choose an African animal and find interesting facts to present to the class using primary and secondary sources. (Primary sources are provided.)
