About the class
NOTE: These classes take place every Sunday at 9:00 to 9:50 am PT between June 6th and July 11th. No class on July 4th.
In this fun and interactive class, kids get to listen to an enthralling African Folktale each week. As the stories are being told, participants will get to play different characters as they act out mini scenes from the tale (they are more than welcome to sit back and just watch if the prefer). They'll learn interesting facts about the country, culture, or history behind the story and they'll spend a few minutes discussing the important lessons they learned. Then we’ll wrap up the class with a simple paper art craft to remember the story.
This class will have the kids moving and talking as they act out scenes and eagerly wait to find out how the story ends.
Ideal for kids aged 5 to 9 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.
