Learning About Nigeria {Week 1}

Our study of Africa continued with the country of Nigeria. For some reason, the kids really enjoyed the book picks that we had for Nigeria. Master Man: A Tall Tale of Nigeria by Aaron Shepard was read so many times I could almost recite the story to you all...

  • Introduce new song about West Africa
  • Use atlas and globe to locate Africa and Nigeria
  • Talked about the size of Nigeria {about twice that of California}
  • Independent reading {pick from the bookshelf ~ see carousel below}
  • Review geography song
  • Learn some new geography terms: rainforest, plains, plateau, gulf
  • Learned about the flag of Nigeria and completed notebooking page
