Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Nigeria: A Country of Many Cultures


With some 250 ethnic groups and over 450 linguistic groups, Nigeria can be a challenging country to understand. By dividing the country into three broad cultural regions, however, students can make generalizations about the diverse physical environment, ethnic groups, culture and economy of Nigeria. After becoming familiar with these regions by processing the chapter (notes, matching photos), students will deepen their knowledge by working in pairs on a brochure (google.doc template accessed via google classroom ) about a Nigerian region/culture. We’ll view the brochures as a class and comment. Finally, before the summative assessment, students will review via kahoot.

Learning Targets: 
Students will be able to take thorough notes about the physical environment, ethnic groups, culture and economy of the main regions of Nigeria.
Students will be able to select photos (online) that represent their assigned region of Nigeria and write an appropriate caption in
