Parcours - Voyages virtuels avec Google Earth Internet History Sourcebooks Internet African History Sourcebook Africa is both the most clearly defined of continents - in its geography - and the hardest to pin down in historical terms. Human beings originated in Africa and, as a result, there is more diversity of human types and societies than anywhere else. It is not possible, in any non-ideological way, to claim any one of these peoples or societies as more essentially "African" than others; nor is it possible to exclude a given society as "not really African". On this site historical sources on the history of human societies in the continent of Africa are presented, when available, without making prejudgements about what is "African". This page is a subset of texts derived from the three major online Sourcebooks listed below. Contents African History: General General Debates Note that these "debates" may have more to do with Modern United States society than African history. Black Athena Debate 2ND Bernal on Lefkowitz Review of Lefkowitz, ed. Cheikh Anta Diop Egypt

Salt Dough Maps First you need an outline map. Here are my two absolute favorite online map sources: 1. Education Place Outline Maps 2. Put the outline onto a sturdy base of cardboard. We chose to paint our cardboard first. Besides an outline map, you'll need a physical map as well for forming mountain ranges, rivers, and other landforms. We made a batch of salt dough while the paint dried: 4 cups flour, 2 cups water, 2 cups salt, and 2 Tbsp. cream of tartar. Then "Sprite", my daughter, began applying a layer of dough to the outline of Alabama. She didn't need any help in this process. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Then, once all of Alabama was covered with salt dough, we studied the physical map and identified the mountainous areas. Finally she used this fun playdough tool to make riverbeds in the map. Before leaving it to dry overnight, we used a toothpick to make holes where we want to place flags identifying various cities, rivers, and mountains. First the rivers. Then the land.
