One way to explain the African continent to the little ones is by telling them about its endless curiosities.
Below we will give you some reasons why Africa can be a focus of attention for the learning of the little ones:
-Africa is a continent with amazing flora and fauna: In it we find the leopard, which adapts to almost any ecosystem, or the buffalo and its natural enemy, the lion, which lives in savannahs and grasslands and is the best-known symbol from all over Africa.
-In the world of plants, Africa can be a huge canvas for children that opens up to their imagination, with native plants from the south of the continent that grow underground, such as Hydnora africana, legendary trees such as the baobab that appeared in the famous book The Little Prince, or the African Violet, which has been exported to half the world.
-The first man in the world. It is believed that the world’s first man originated in Africa: the first Homo sapiens. From there, he expanded to other parts of the world.
-African colonies. In the 17th century, the European powers (United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Germany and Italy) divided up the countries of the entire continent.
-Wars and conflicts in Africa in the 21st century. Today, most of the world’s conflicts are in Africa. It is estimated that there are about 25 throughout the continent.
