Kenya Thematic Unit

My class are currently learning all about Kenya so I’ve created a thematic plan that has lots of different lesson ideas for different curricular areas including ideas for;

  • Literacy (Reading, Writing and Oral language)
  • Geography
  • History
  • Science
  • S.P.H.E.
  • Art
  • Music
  • P.E.

My class are really interested to learn about a country that is so far away. It’s been very interesting to hear their ideas and thoughts abut Kenya so far and about Africa in general. We watched some brilliant Youtube videos so the children could get a sense of what life is like in Kenya and learned a song in Swahili too. So far the children are really enjoying the lessons and we are using iPads to create our own keynote presentations on the facts that we have learned.

Here is the thematic plan which includes a visual overview for the subjects listed above, a plan with headings title, strand, strand unit, lesson ideas and a list of resources and links too;
