Hello 7th graders,
We have been discussing how West African farmers adapted to their land and climate, the common characteristics of West African religions and the rural government of West African villages. Today you turned in your diaries of Mansa Musa. For lesson 4, you will be writing a short story about a lost Muslim trader who stops for the night at a small West African farming village. Narratives will need to be decorated and should highlight the kinds of beliefs and customs the trader might encounter. Make sure you use details relating to lesson 4 as you write your story. Good luck!
Below is a short summary that covers the topics from the textbook.
