South Africa - Traditional Sports and Games takes a look at games and sports indigenous to South Africa including a no prep strategy game based on the popular South African game Morabaraba. The game, which reinforces logic and problem-solving skills, has been simplified for elementary school aged students in two learning levels: K-2 and 3-5. The South African Department of Sports and Recreation has started a program to bring indigenous sports into schools and communities. This is important in order to teach new generations of South Africans about the games played by their ancestors. Studying the way early South Africans played helps preserve their culture.
South Africa - Indigenous Sports and Games (37 pages), includes the following:
* South African Indigenous Sports and Games - lesson with images to present as you teach.
* Mini Morabaraba Game Board and Cow Tokens
* Mini Morabaraba Game instructions
Materials needed to make Mini Morabaraba Game Board and Cow Tokens include one-piece white card stock per student and scissors. Crayons, colored pencils, and markers are optional

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
"In my nearly 30-year career in education, I have never seen children so engaged in their learning! International Travel Academy is truly a multi-disciplinary approach that enables children to explore the world in an unforgettable way. Students get a real sense of what it means to respect another country's heritage, beliefs and ways of living, thus making them more tolerant and internationally-minded. I highly recommend this program to educators and parents wishing to make learning come to life!"

“(The five-day program) has given our school the unique opportunity to provide students with incredible experiences that align so well with our IB focus. Each spring with family and community support, our school essentially is transformed into our country of study for one full week. Teachers are easily able to follow the daily curriculum and activities provided, and the students truly enjoy this special week of instruction. From the art projects to festive food tastings, cultural dress, music, dance and traditions, the students spend this entire week engaged in new and exciting experiences of a new country. I would encourage all schools (IB, or not) to jump in and make a week like this happen for their students. It is incredibly gratifying to spend this week with kids as they come together to learn and share experiences like these across grade levels, school-wide. When we hear such rich discussion in classrooms and read their detailed writing about what they've learned as part of (the) week, it makes all the preparation, planning and expense totally worth it!! “
