Jambo Africa highlights cultural, wildlife and landscape similarities and differences. At the end of the slide/video segment students enthusiastically point out numerous examples that they saw or heard. This year one of our schools was not doing a unit on Africa but wanted me to return to focus on community. Examples of people working together on goat shed construction, food preparation and classroom activities is evident and readily identified by the students. Students were able to point out where there could have been better collaboration. A great component added to the program!
