Lessons from Africa
http://www.sendacow.org.uk/lessonsfromafrica/
Welcome to Lessons from Africa – an ever-growing collection of teaching resources to help bring Africa to life in your school.
We love it when children's faces light up as they learn something new about the world. But we also know how difficult it can be to find the resources you need when you're in a hurry, especially about African countries. That's why we've set up this website to make life easier for you and more inspiring for your pupils.
And with the future in their hands it's so important that they understand about sustainability and the reality of life in Africa, away from the pictures of starving children and big game safaris. Our aim is to help children be confident about their futures and learn from amazing children in Africa who have gained new skills and new hope themselves.
So who are we? We are a charity called Send a Cow and we work hand in hand with poor families, teaching them the skills they need to leave poverty behind for good.

Africa (Kit of Digital Assets)

Africa (Kit of Digital Assets)
Africa holds some of the oldest known examples of human kind. Some of the bones that have been unearthed date as far back as 3.3 million years. These pictures show some examples of different tribes and groups of people still living and practicing traditions of their regions and the many that came ...
“Students and teachers around the world can access pre-made collections, or "kits," of various digital assets - still images, background music, narratives, video and text. Each kit is built around a common theme, or curricular topic.
For students, this becomes the construction paper of the 21st century --allowing them to create reports and projects filled with rich, immersive media for communicating their vision of whatever subjects they chose.
As they master the technology, they will progress from building projects with supplied materials to projects where they find or create their own resources -- a strategy that results in truly authentic assessment as measured by the projects produced."

Ancient Africa : 4 2 Explore
http://eduscapes.com/42explore/africa.htm
This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.
