Sassafras Room is a Children’s House classroom on the Toledo Campus. Sarah Duvall and Wendi Rowland are the classroom’s co-teachers.

We have been enjoying the beautiful weather outside with fun games led by our 6th Level Intern, popsicle making, planting our own sunflower seeds, and picnic lunches!

To gain a better understanding of the continent of Africa, Sassafras children watched a video about the life of a young girl in a small village in rural Malawi.  To see the video click on the link below:

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.
