The Cultures of Africa

Second graders study the people of Africa, the animals of Africa, and the customs and traditions of the African people. Song and dance are a central part of the African culture, therefore the focus is primarily on those two aspects. They compare the lives of African children to their own personal lifestyles. By studying the African culture, the students become aware of the characteristics and lifestyles of a culture other than their own.

Lesson Planet has helped me give some great extending activities that I hadn't thought of before. It has also helped me be able to deliver a quality lesson when life gets busy, when I'm forced to be on the fly and not as prepared as I'd like to be.
