Summary
The vibrant sights and sounds of West Africa come alive as children learn about the region's diverse geography and cultures, and they explore the history of African Americans. They'll learn to count to ten in the More language and practice a few words in the Yoruba language, take a field trip to an African food market and learn how to make their own African adinkra cloth designs. They'll also enjoy the animated folktale, "Anansi the Spider, " and sing the traditional Senegalese folk song, "Galigi."
