We also listened to African music and looked at many pictures of animals and people from Africa.
We studied Ndebele House Painting and learned that the women in a village in South Africa paint the outsides of houses in geometric patterns, first outlining in black and filling in the shapes with bright colors. The children have been creating their own geometric patterns and painting them.
