As we visit schools in Africa, we are regularly impressed by the creative methods utilized by teachers to educate their students! Today we want to highlight a few of the unique learning methods we have seen in our travels around Africa, even in areas without the means to purchase or receive traditional school supplies.
At the completed Bondo Primary School in Malawi, we spotted homemade weather instruments constructed using household items.
Shown in the pictures above are a windsock, a weather vane made of cardboard, and an anemometer made of used plastic bottles.
Teachers rarely have access to more than one chalkboard, so they often hang concepts they are currently learning from the ceiling. At a potential project in Ghana, we noticed letters hanging from the ceiling, and at the previous campus of Kabuthu Primary School in Malawi, we noticed geographical landmarks written on pieces of cardboard hanging from the ceiling.
