2. Read about Africa and look for information about major landforms in Africa. Make notes on those landforms. Make notes on 2 other interesting facts.

3. Prepare and practice what you want to tell the class about Africa. Be sure you show them where it is located and what landforms you found. Tell them the other interesting facts you learned.
