What's Taught?
The Waldorf School Curriculum - Grade 3 by Eugene Schwartz


Housebuilding notes - Africa:

    Traditional Houses from Around the World by A.G. Smith is good background information for the teacher. It is a Dover coloring book but you can use the illustrations and background information to help you plan. Somba clay houses in Benin, Masai houses in Kenya, Dogon cliff dwellings in Mali, Moroccan brick houses in North Africa, painted mud houses in Nigeria, and a Baobab tree house in Sudan are all included.

    How Do People Live? by Philip Steele (based on the Hungarian original by Lajos Boglar) is also a nice resource, which includes Tuareg animal skin tents, mud houses in Nigeria and Mali, wood and mud buildings around Lake Chad in West Africa, branch and cowhide huts on the Africans plains, mud brick houses in the Nubian desert, and the thatched huts of the Dogon people. The illustrations are really lovely. They would be great for a chalkboard.

    Wonderful Houses Around the World by Yoshio Komatsu includes Togo and Senegal. Photographs of the exterior and drawn diagrams of the interior are featured.

    I also really love A Ride on Mother's Back: A Day of Baby Carrying Around the World by Emery & Durga Bernhard. It includes the Mbuti, Tuareg, and Mandingo.

Share your ideas!

Community Bulletin Board is a unique feature at Waldorf Curriculum where people can make notes about things they would like to remember for the future. If you like the idea of never losing your teaching ideas again, submit them to the website and we'll keep track of them for you! (I can't even count the number of teaching notebooks and small pieces of paper I have lost -- the site is much more manageable). Simply join our Group; if you're already a Waldorf Curriculum member, contact me to submit your ideas.
