People of the Interior

The People of the Interior section of All About South Africa (South African History) would fit into Tapestry of Grace Y1.

Before I started with Tapestry of Grace, a friend and I did some homeschool unit studies on South Africa with our 6 children. Now that I am using TOG, I would do one of two things. First, South Africa has 40 weeks in their school year, while TOG only does 36, so I could take a week away from TOG here and there and add in a week of SA History. But if my year is too busy, I would just take the time to read the section in All About South Africa and add one of the books to read, if I have it.

Ideas to Incorporate:
  • Learn some Tswana
  • Make South African flag from beads
  • Make Samp and Beans
  • Make Ndebele homes
  • Mark people groups on wall map

Books to look for: 
I have had some success in finding SA books by watching on, and don't forget to check your local library!
