Have your students spend time exploring different types of African Homes. They can create a gallery by working in groups and choosing a home to draw and decorate. You can also take this a step further and have them work in groups to recreate a home using boxes and misc. craft materials listed above. Here are various types of African Heritage Homes: Bemileke cluster houses with tall cone roofs made of grass Mousgoum mud cone houses molded of mud and stones and marked with vertical lines to channel the rain. Malian village compounds, including round-top houses for the extended family, granaries, and walls. Nuba linked houses, which feature red clay walls, pointed cone roofs, and pig and goat houses. Asante steep thatched wood-frame houses joined in a circle and linked by mud walls. Somolo multistory mud roofs and central granary and grinding room Zulu semispherical framework houses covered with grass mats and arranged in a ring protected by a woven twig fence. Yoruba courtyard houses with carved posts, thatched roofs around the outer rooms, and open central court. Caribbean balcony houses with an African flair. You can also have students draw families and figures in the houses. Encourage them to use multicultural skin toned art materials and supplies.
