Help For A US School Project About Kenya
by Sandi Priest
I am a 3rd grade teacher in North Carolina. March 31, 2009 our school is having a world travel night. My class got assigned Kenya. I was thrilled with the assignment.
My husband plays drums (kit and hand) and I love to dance. I have been looking for a DVD so that I may learn a dance and then teach it to my students. I have purchased a couple of music CD's but have yet to find a DVD of their dances.
I would also like to purchase material for the children to wear like shaws during the performance. I think making the large neck rings would be nice too. Even making the colorful jewelry would be a nice touch.
The students will also make projects (on science boards) about the region and it's people and animals. My absolute favorite animal is a giraffe. I have told my student about Christian the Lion too. The school blocked my attempts to show them the video clips of the reunion between him and his human friends.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
