Adinkra Prints

Second graders studied the Adinkra printmaking process of the Ashanti in Ghana, Africa. We learned about the symbolism and  function of Adinkra cloth, and then created our own symbols / stamps for the prints. We also got to explore a giant traveling map of Africa on loan from National Geographic at the end of the lesson.
