Reading is a vital research skill. It can be challenging and fun at the same time. Information about several different characters of African folklore had to be researched and summarised in tabular format under specific categories. Some of the children used the iPad app, ‘Notability’ to highlight key information needed in their summaries. Working together in small groups added to the fun.
Discovering the diversity and imaginative ideas in our colourful African cultures will hopefully stimulate creative ideas in our Gr 5’s own creative writing next week, as they try to invent some fantasy characters of their own!
