Students can enhance their understanding of the book A Long Walk to Water by researching the country of Sudan or Ethiopia or the African continent as a whole and creating a beautiful and informative infographic! By learning more about the rich diversity of geography, languages and cultures in the vast continent of Africa, students can have a better understanding of the characters, their motivations, and the story as a whole. Students could also highlight the journey Salva took within their map.
In this activity, students will conduct research using school resources and display what they learned with an infographic. Teachers may choose to provide students with a graphic organizer to help students keep track of their research. These posters can be printed out and hung around the room or school. Students could also project their posters onto a screen and give a presentation about their findings to the class!
