Students in Mr. Rob Bentley’s ninth-grade geography classes have been working on presentations about specific countries in Africa. They do the presentations because, according to Mr. Bentley, there isn’t enough time to talk about all 53 countries in Africa. Students had two weeks to work on the presentations, and they presented their reports on Monday, December 14. Before making their reports, they did two class periods of research on Africa.

Students did different things for their presentations. “I’ll probably get a poster, and some pictures of different tribes, and their customs and cultures there,” said MacKenzie Morris, who is doing her presentation on Niger. According to Leksi Rosenberg, who is doing a report on Mali, she will most likely do a PowerPoint for her presentation.

According to Mr. Bentley, most students “seem to really enjoy” assignments like this one. MacKenzie said, “I like learning about Africa and everyone in it.”
