Take your class on a journey across Africa with this highly engaging 30 minute workshop. Starting in North East Africa, we’ll take your pupils to Egypt to see the Pyramids of Giza, the only standing Ancient Wonder of the World. From here, we’ll visit Ethiopia, where pupils will be introduced to Turmi market, a bustling place for people to trade food, clothes and even animals.
We’ll then venture further south across the Serengeti, where pupils will come across a tower of giraffes. Pupils will then be taken inland to the Congo, where they’ll come face to face with a silverback gorilla in the jungle.
Continuing our journey south, we’ll hover your class over the Namib desert and Victoria Falls, finally ending in Kruger National Park where your pupils will be able to spot a Bull Elephant.
This workshop is a great way of introducing your pupils to a variety of different countries across Africa and it’s guaranteed to inspire some amazing writing!
