Create an Animal Folk Tale
African culture is rich in folklore, with beautiful stories told over generations related to everyday experiences, animals, environment, and more. These folktales were traditionally used to explain things that people didn't understand, such as why the moon rises at night, or to explain why particular animals look and act the way they do.
Help your child tap into his imaginative storytelling skills by creating and writing a richly-embellished folk tale about his favorite member of the animal kingdom. Creative writing is a great way to boost his composition skills, not to mention his love of reading!
