In this fun and unique class, kids will listen to stories and folktales from across the continent of Africa and then they'll complete a simple craft related to the story they heard. As the stories are being told, the kids will be asked to participate in the story as a group with their movement, voices, and emotions, making it a highly immersive and interactive storytelling experience.
Each class begins with a brief introduction to the country the story is from, or the topic the story is about. Then, the storytelling beings. The final part of the session is the craft related to the story, which takes up most of the time. The crafts for this class are kept simple on purpose so that parents don't need to spend too much extra buying materials. Most of the supplies needed are things that many people already have at home.
Ideal for kids aged 5 to 9 years old.

Learning about culture can either help children connect with their roots and appreciate their own history more, or it can help them better appreciate diversity so that they can respectfully interact and engage with people from different backgrounds. Plus, global awareness is highlighted by CEOs and educational experts as one of the most important skills that leaders of tomorrow need to possess in order to be successful in their careers
