Savannah or Sahara?

1st year pupils are investigating an African country. Their task is to create a poster encouraging tourists to come and visit, but which also supplies all the information that a visitor will require – including whether it is safe to go there or not!

Pupils used these two games to remind themselves about the various countries in Africa.

Countries of Africa quiz

Then each group selected three possible countries to investigate and staff chose their final destinations to avoid duplicates.

Pupils then started to find out about tourist attractions in their particular country.
