Digital Learning Workshop | Ages 4-8 | online

Music, Song, and Stories from the African Diaspora

Join Mr. Brian on an adventure exploring folktales from Africa to West Virginia. Using music, song, and movement, we lead students in the retelling of three folktales: John Henry, Abiyoyo, and Anansi the Spider. We then share a brilliantly-colored shadow puppet short film featuring Anansi and Sister Mud Turtle, followed by an interactive puppet-making activity where students create their very own Abiyoyo Hand Puppets.
