Our All about Africa lesson plan introduces students to the massive continent of Africa. During this lesson, students are asked to match given information to the correct African country, city, or place in order to demonstrate their understanding of the different countries within Africa. Students are also asked to work with a partner to research an African country, assigned by their teacher, and create a poster urging people to travel there in order to enhance their research skills; students then present their poster to the class, utilizing their public speaking and presentation skills.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to locate the continent of Africa on a map, list some of the countries and characteristics of Africa, and explain some of its history.
