La Légende Baoulé

La Légende Baoulé

Author: Beth Barsness
  1. The students will practice interpretive and presentational skills by reading and understanding a short legend and then retelling the story in their own words based on their line drawings of the story.

This unit tells the story of the origin of the Baoulé (Baule) people of West Africa. It tells the story of their migration from present-day Ghana to the region of present-day Ivory Coast while under threat of attack from another tribe.

Students will read the story and, while they read, they will make stick-figure drawings to illustrate the story. After reading and practicing in class, the students will retell the story based on their drawings thus perpetuating the oral tradition that they are studying.

Length of time needed: 2-3 class periods (50 minutes each)
