Africa Wonderings


Below are the claims/questions/wonderings about Africa that we came up with after watching the 10 Myths about Africa video. Some questions have been omitted since they correspond directly to the Mapping Lab Challenges or cannot be answered. (ex: What technology does Africa have?) (What is the GDP of Africa?)

Throughout the course of the Africa unit students can research answers to any of the questions and post them on this page.

Be sure to include multiple sources, your name, and links or citations to where you found your information.

World Leader Trading cards will go to those who post multiple responses with quality information.
