Introducing Africa

Elementary School
This kit is designed to unearth stereotypes about Africa and helps to teach about diversity. In the first lesson, students challenge their own stereotypes about Africa through a series of photographs. After discussing the photographs, students examine how media constructions of Africa helped inform their responses. The second lesson uses currency as the medium to explore individual African countries’ constructions of the continent.

All materials are classroom-ready, including: teacher guides, student handouts, overviews, and assessments.
