Reviewer Comments:

This resource is one unit in the collection of Seventh Grade Social Studies curriculum. The lessons include objectives, detailed procedures, and useful handouts. Students will participate in a variety of activities that will help them learn about colonization and independence movements in Africa. Some of the highlights include learning a mnemonic to memorize countries in Africa, participating in a role playing activity about European imperialism in Nigeria and Kenya, and writing an inaugural speech for an independent African country. The lessons are geared towards a specific classroom at the middle school level, however, with some modifications much of the curriculum can be easily adapted to any Social Studies classroom at the middle or high school level that is covering World History.
