Sade Wright, Third Grade, Barringer Academic Center
In this curriculum unit, third graders will be engaged in different activities that teach them about a few countries in Africa. The students will be able to compare and contrast themselves to African children. Throughout the unit, the students will compose a book of facts on Africa. The facts will come from the completion of the different activities throughout the unit. By the end of the unit, they will create a good or service that can be used in a country in Africa. The purpose of the unit is to incorporate African literature into the Language Arts class. The activities can be used throughout the school year or consecutively within a few weeks.
