Movin' Around the World
I'm getting this post in just under the wire! But, it is technically still Monday here, so it's time for another post to get us Movin' Around the World.
If you missed any of the other posts about the continents, just scroll down below and you can catch up!
As you can see above, today's post will be about Africa, one of the 7 continents.
Africa is a very large continent. When I researched Africa, I wanted to highlight a few things about Africa that the students could relate to and learn about.
So, I definitely chose the oceans surrounding Africa, the landscapes, and of course many of the animals. I work with children with a variety of special needs, so in case you wonder while you're listening to the song, I purposely repeat verses in the song so that all students can see the visuals while we sing the song and/or so students have time to "sing" via a voice output device within the sessions. When I am in the classrooms, I adapt to whatever each classroom in particular needs. Sometimes I don't repeat each verse, and sometimes I do.
If you would like a song sheet for the Africa song, simply send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to email it to you.
