We just started a unit on Rwanda this week.  First step is to find it on the globe.  It's tiny! 

Each strip of paper has a fact about Rwandan kids.  My kids are categorizing them according to similarities and differences.  I wanted them to see that kids are kids wherever they live, even though there are differences.

We bought yarn made by Rwandan widows and learned to knit a hat. 

 I don't do gender stereotypes.  My boy likes knitting too. He's secure in his manhood.  He does enjoy listening to hard rock while he knits.  :)
 Finished it!
 Upon close inspection, you'll find definite errors, but they did pretty well for their first time.
