KONOS In-A-Bag Curriculum only


Russia: The Land of Endurance teaches the students ballet movements, so they can choreograph their own version of The Nutcracker, as well as all about the space race, the czars, the Russian Revolution, the wild life of the tundra and taiga, the Russian gymnasts and gymnastics, the Cuban missile crisis, the communist State, and much, much more all while listening to Peter and the Wolf and designing pysanky eggs and painting matryoshka dolls. 

Most people would say that younger children cannot understand communism. It is too abstract and too old a concept for young ones to understand. Jessica would say nonsense�just make it hands-on and personal. Have all children get their lunches� not just any, everyday lunch, but a special lunch with treats. Before lunch starts, mom pins on the Soviet flag and informs everyone that she is "the State" and instructs everyone, "There will be no prayers today, because we are an atheist nation believing only in the material world." Further, she instructs everyone to pass his lunch to her. "There is no individual ownership in the communist state. That is not your lunch. It belongs to the State." If anyone protests, she sends him to exile in Siberia (aka the bathroom). Next, mom will begin "redistribution of the wealth". Each child gets one potato chip while "the State" feasts on Hostess Cup Cakes, Ding-Dongs, and ham and cheese sandwiches. Any protesting�off to Siberia. Do the students understand communism after having a KONOS communist lunch? You bet! KONOS takes abstract concepts and packages them in memorable, retainable, fun activities.To order the curriculum manual by itself:

Africa: The Land of Stewardship curriculum was released in June, 2002, and is a stand-alone unit.  It is a great way to study the fascinating continent of Africa with its incredible variety of people and cultures.  Start at the top of the continent and "safari" down from Egypt, to the bulge countries, to the Congo, and end up in South Africa.  Compare Islam to Christianity, study the animals of the Savannah and jungle, read about the true life adventures of missionaries, and dress like pharaohs. Kids will never forget dressing like Tuaregs, cooking Ethiopian injera, trading at a Moroccan bazaar, going on a Pygmy hunt with bells and a volleyball net, making a Zulu shield, crafting a Masi necklace, dramatizing the Ashanti culture, and studying the diamond mines of South Africa.
