Crisp Firm Clean copy ! Includes 30 copies each of 4 newspapers. Grades 4-9. Offering students an adventure into discovery of times past, this all-in-one integrated kit covers key topics for the study of Africa.

Each edition of The African Voice focuses on one of four themes: the Northern Edition (Kush and Egypt on the Nile, major rulers, grand construction projects, politics, commerce, and contributions to science, art, and culture), the Eastern Edition (Swahili, Buganda, Aksum, the impact of Islam, and trade with Arabia and Asia), the Western Edition (Ghana, Mali, Songhay, Ife, Benin, Nok, Jenne, Timbuktu, Mansa Musa, Sundiata, and oral history), and the Southern Edition (Mapungubwe, Great Zimbabwe, Shona, Esikongo, Zulu, and the role of migrations). Four transparencies present historical geography, a timeline, ancient Timbuktu, and the modern world's African legacy. Project card activities deal with Nubian rulers, Egyptian toys, papyrus, Swahili traditions, Great Zimbabwe, and African trade, food, ancestors, jewelry, masks, pottery, and textiles.
