Social Studies With Mr. Harris

All year long, our 3rd Grade students will be learning about various cultures of the world.  This month, Mr. Harris (Social Studies teacher) will be teaching lessons about the history of Nigeria!  Nigeria is a country on the continent of Africa. There are at least 250 languages spoken in Nigeria and possibly more than 400!  Music and art spring from strong tribal roots.  To see a video about Nigeria, click here

Students will be asked to create a timeline charting the ancient days of Nigerian civilization up to its current government that exists today. The students will also learn about the colonization of Nigeria to European countries and its move towards an independent government that exists today. Third graders are looking very forward to tying together all of their past lessons that will give them a complete comprehensive understanding of the country of Nigeria.
