Extensions and Adaptations
Adaptations:The research template can be modified as necessary. The teacher can also set up this project as a jigsaw, where groups of students are asked to research either one country or a few facts about each country then will share back with their jigsaw groups. Students can be partnered to find information on their own or this research can take place as a whole class. These books may be substituted for other Kenyan and Haitian stories as necessary.
