Students Write Stories for Ethiopian Children

Students in Dr. Rauchwerk's Science in the Elementary School and Science and Health in Early Childhood courses have been writing science stories and activities for children in Ethiopia. The stories are based on the Ethiopian Environmental Science standards and are based on topics that are culturally relevant to Ethiopian children. By using translation software and a translator to check for accuracy, the stories are written both in English and Amharic. Below are PDFs of some of the work.
