Primary recently continued their exploration of Africa by shifting their focus to Ghana. Although it is a small country, about twice the size of Ohio, it has many unique characteristics. It is where the well-known kente cloth originated, woven on looms by the Ashanti people, as well as other arts and crafts.
Ghana is home to the Kakum National Park and its canopy walkway, which allows pedestrians a unique view of the rainforest at the canopy level. We were also very excited to discover that Ghana is the world’s second largest producer of cacao!
Primary students spent a week exploring Ghana with books, photos, artifacts, and games.
