Ghanian Kente Watercolor Salt Project

Posted Eureka Lessons 7th Grade Social Science, Lessons

Ghanian Kente cloth with its beautiful geometric patterns and bright colors truly captures the vibrancy of West African culture.  It's no wonder Kente cloth made a recent comeback in fashion.  If you're a 7th grade history teacher looking for a fun activity to include in your West Africa unit, this inexpensive art project incorporates themes of geography, natural resources (hence the salt), and West African art and culture.
