Welcome to Week 3 of Global Studies!
This week, let’s explore African folklore with Anansi the Spider!
First, watch this amazing storyteller to learn about trickster characters like Anansi: https://unctv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ket-storytelling-109/anansi-hat-shaking-dance/
Next, here is a video so you can draw your very own Anansi with Art Hub for Kids: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI03je6inoY. Feel free to email me a picture of your spider and I'll post it under Student work. (my email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Here is a map of Africa to explore: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/attachments/images/large/AFRICA_Satellite_150dpi.jpg?1557238427
Scavenger Hunt Time! Try to find these places on the map.
- South Africa
- The Gambia (we’ll be exploring this country in a couple of weeks!Hint: it's tiny)
Finally, if you'd like to hear more Anansi books, have your parents email me so I can add you to my roster on Epic Books. Here is a link to books for week 3: https://www.getepic.com/app/user-collection/10679101 (click on Students and put in class code avn1915 to sign in as a guest)
