This engaging package includes the following:

⭐All About South Africa Mini Book - This informational booklet contains 33 pages. Students simply cut out the pages, stack them, and staple them together. Each page contains key facts about South Africa, and black and white illustrations for students to color. The pages have not been numbered, allowing you to pick and choose the ones that work best for your students. A blank page for students to record their “favorite things about South Africa” is also included.

An additional blank page to accompany each information page is also included. These pages have the same graphics and titles, but the information boxes have been left blank. This gives you the option of having your students write in the information themselves. This is great for writing practice!

This fun mini book contains pages of information and illustrations on the following topics:

☀Map of South Africa

☀Geography of South Africa

☀Fun facts about South Africa

☀The Flag of South Africa





☀The Cape of Good Hope

☀The Cradle of Humankind

☀The Blue Crane (National Bird of South Africa)




☀Writing Prompt: "If I were to travel to South Africa, I would want to see..."
☀Writing Prompt: "Something interesting I have learned about South Africa is.."

☀Picture Prompt: Draw something interesting you have learned about South Africa.

☀Writing Prompt: "My favorite things about South Africa"

A cute cover page is also included.

⭐South Africa Comprehension Questions - A full page of comprehension questions is also included. Students use the information in the mini book to help them answer the questions. A detailed answer key is included!

⭐South Africa Fact Gathering Page - A fun graphic organizer is included to help students gather important information about the country of South Africa.

⭐South Africa Writing Paper - A writing template for students to use to record the things they have learned about South Africa is included. Three different versions of the template have been included to help make differentiation easy - blank, lined, and inter-lined.

⭐World Passport Activity - This activity was created to use alongside the different Country Study and Continent Study resources available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. As students complete each country/continent study, they receive a new stamp for their passport - a different stamp for each place is included in each of my country/continent studies. There is also a blank country/continent map included in the passport, for students to color in the places they have learned about. Finished passports make excellent records of learning, and are a great “souvenir” to take home and share with parents.
