Today we went on a Dwankhozi Gallery Walk. We got to:
- Learn about the challenges some people in Zambia have accessing safe water & experience what it might be like to walk for water (carrying heavy containers of water) from Ms. Leckie
- Taste Nshima (a staple food in Zambia, similar to polenta)
- Make music on percussion instruments with Ms. Stone
- Learn about how many people in Zambia use fabric and experience what it might be like to carry a baby or small child on your back with a fabric wrap (baby=bag of rice) from Ms. Ward
- LIsten to Mr. Bailey tell vivid, descriptive stories of his experience in Zambia last summer
- Kick a homemade futball, similar to ones used by most young people that attend Dwankhozi Community School–fashioned out of grocery bags and rubber bands with Ms. Marks
Zikomo Kwambiri (thank you very much) to Ms. Ward, Ms. Leckie, Ms. Stone, Ms. Amsel, Ms. Marks, Mr. Bailey, Mr. Elliott, and all the other staff and parents who helped make this gallery walk an incredibly enjoyable way for us to learn more about life in Zambia. What a treat!
