The project is designed to provide all elementary students with cultural enrichment by exposing them to African music, art, storytelling, and movement. This project can be adapted to other cultures as a yearly project. The goal of the African Connection project is to cultivate an appreciation and awareness of the African culture. Student outcomes include: (1) developing an awareness of Africa as a complex continent; (2) demonstrating acceptance of diversity; (4) understanding the historic importance of Africa; (5) creating art and musical instruments; and (6) performing traditional dance.
