Below is a list of resources compiled a unit study of Africa for kids.
Studying Africa was one of the highlights of our kindergarten year! We loved learning about different regions of Africa and all of the exotic animals and their habitats. We spent extra time in Africa completing projects and diving into vivid and humorous folklore.
This list is up-to-date as of January 2017. Lineups on Netflix and Prime change frequently and occasionally YouTube videos are deleted. If you see something that is no longer available, please leave a comment. I will update this as needed. Thanks!
