Students study many aspects of African culture, geography and animal life

New School Montessori preprimary students have begun their study of Africa. They are making flags of various countries in the continent and are learning about some of the crops harvested there like plantains, passion fruit, mango, eggplant, sugar cane and papaya. Students have been learning about some of the ways babies are carried in other cultures and will even be balancing a few items in a basket on their heads. Various African habitats have been studied and children have practiced classifying animals by their habitat: rainforest, desert or grasslands.
