African Cup of Nations

I included a unit on Africa in my scheme of work for Year 7. This followed a survey of student voice, and also the publication of the GA KS3 Toolkit book 'Into Africa'.
I also had a colleague who spent time in Africa, who wrote some materials for the unit around her experiences.
By teaching the unit at the start of the Spring term, we could also tie it in with an event which started today: the African Cup of Nations.

See an ancient Slideshare of mine for one way that we used the tournament.
The group tables for the tournament are here...
