The fourth graders spent the week learning about life in Africa. A man who is originally from Kenya, travels around the state and teaches children about his culture. Morgan was fascinated with the differences and suddenly thankful for her easy life here.
They learned African drumming and dance as part of the activities and then put on a show for their parents. Morgan practiced at home every night. (She has no rhythm but tried so hard.) She actually did fantastic in the performance!
Getting ready to dance.
Getting ready to drum. Morgan is in purple, sitting at the drum.
Each set of drums has their own rhythm so there were five groups each doing their own drumming. All together they sounded really good.
