Class Experience

This class will introduce the student to less popular myths while visiting one very popular one (Amun-Re of Ancient Egypt) in order to expand their cultural awareness of African cultures. 
I've practised and studied African spirituality for the past 11 years extensively and an integral part of it is mythology because it explains the origins of mankind, rituals, celebrations, and other aspects of our diverse ways of life. My knowledge not only comes from oral history, but also from books such as The Book of Coming Forth by Day, African Myths of Origin, and several others that I had to read. 
At the end of the class, there's an individual activity where the student will create their own creator deity through a short story or 50-100 words or through an illustration.
Notebook or paper Pen, pencil, coloured pencils, or crayons
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There's no class assessment.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents are encouraged to join the class.

Parents should note that one myth briefly mentions limbs being dismembered and scattered.

Parents should note that one myth mentions humans being created from saliva.
