Around the World Preschool: Africa

In the new year, we learned about my daughter’s favorite continent – Africa!  She especially loves the African animals that live in the East of the continent, so I made sure to include stories from Kenya and Tanzania.  But I also wanted to learn about the diversity of cultures around the continent, so we looked at many different countries.  This was a really fun study for us!
