Science in Action: Africa's Natural Wonders

Posted by AsOne Global on March 6, 2014 at 4:30 PM

The objective of this lesson was for students to create a travel advertisement attracting visitors to one of Africa’s natural wonders. The class began by defining “natural wonder” and continued on to view pictures and discuss some of Africa’s natural wonders including: the Nile River, Mount Kilimanjaro, Okavango Delta, the Serengeti Migration, Sahara Desert, Ngorongoro Crater, Red Sea Reef, Namib Desert, Victoria Falls, Avenue of the Baobabs, and the Great Rift Valley. Through digital demonstrations, students learned the science behind how rivers, volcanoes, and craters formed. As each feature was discussed, the class located them on a large map of Africa. Each student then chose the natural wonder they would have most like to visit, created a drawing of their destination, and wrote a few sentences aimed at attracting tourists to their natural wonder.
