Geography – Nigeria

It took a bit longer than expected to work through Nigeria, but that had more to do with taking our trip to Chicago than the country.  šŸ™‚ 

General reference books:
Nigeria: The Culture by Anne Rosenberg – this is one in a series that is aimed at older children, but I find that it is very easy to summarize for littles and it has great info
Nigeria by Ann Heinrichs – very much for an older child and it is not easy to summarize, but if you are interested in learning more about Nigeria, yourself, then this is a quick read; there are a few good pictures
Nigeria by Bridget Giles (National Geographic) – aimed at older children, but this book has great pictures and has lots on the country’s geography and is easy to summarize

Literature:
Bitter Bananas by Isaac Olaleye
Bikes for Rent by Isaac Olaleye

Activities:
Colored the Nigerian flag
made a mask from cardboard – instructions in the Usborne Art Treasury
working on a diorama (pictures to come next week)
watched Africa: The Serengeti: IMAX – some animal kill scenes, this DVD would be better to include with the Kenya study, but it arrived here too late for that
