Life and Times of Africa

Let’s explore the ancient world. We’ve chosen folk tales, myths, biographies, and documentaries from a few of the many countries in Africa, and we have maps for you to download and trace or fill in also. This month we have all sorts of information about Africa for you!

Map Study: 

Map Study is very simple. Print off a map. Label what you can from memory. Look up three-five more things and add them. Look over your labeled map for a minute or two each day, but only add to it once or twice a week. Soon you’ll know far more about the area you are studying than you did before

We’ve consulted several books lists for books about the many different countries and peoples of Africa. But if we were to include even one story from each people group, this list would be overwhelming. So here are many options chosen from books that were on more than one list, as well as links to the book lists we consulted.
