About the class
Note: This class takes place every Thursday from Aug 27th to Sep 24th (a total of 5 sessions). It starts at 3:00pm and ends at 3:30pm PDT each session. Tickets can be bought as a bundle for all 5 sessions, or as a day pass for each session.
About the Class
In this fun, live and interactive class, kids get to listen to enthralling African Folktales about animals, kings, warriors and more! Every session focuses on a different story, and each session is just as educational as it is entertaining. One day we could talk about how African folklore inspired some popular Superheroes we know and love today, another day we could talk about Africa's big five animals. As the stories are being told, participants will get to play different characters as they act out mini scenes from the tale. They'll learn interesting facts about the country, geography or history behind the story and they'll spend a few minutes discussing the important lessons they learned. This class will have the kids moving and talking as they act out scenes and eagerly wait to find out how the story ends.
Recommended for kids 4 to 10 years old.
Why Take This Class?
Learning about culture can either help children connect with their roots and appreciate their own history more, or it can help them better appreciate diversity so that they can respectfully interact and engage with people from different backgrounds. Plus, global awareness is highlighted by CEOs and educational experts as one of the most important skills that leaders of tomorrow need to possess in order to be successful in their careers.
Using folktales is a fun way for kids to learn about other cultures because who doesn’t love a good story? The stories in this class are captivating and entertaining, and are most likely like nothing the kids have heard before, which makes the session all that more enchanting.
So, whether you want them to learn about culture or you are just looking for something for them to do, this class is sure to have your children captivated and entertained the whole way through.
What Parents Are Saying
My son absolutely LOVED this class. He was bouncing around, actively participating, and laughing happily through the activities and stories. He also enjoyed recounting the stories to our family later in the day. Delightful. Thank you for inspiring him. - Ondine, Activity Hero Reivew
