So, my presentation for the International Fair is on Thursday. I am looking for ideas. Here's what I have so far:
  • coffee beans (American and Ethiopian, seriously- they look different!) and the legend of how coffee was discovered
  • Pictures of various places in Ethiopia
  • Pictures of native Ethiopians in traditional (and non-traditional) garb
  • Pictures of coffee ceremony and a little explanation of roasting the beans, popcorn, etc.
  • A few words/phrases in Amharic
  • CD of Ethiopian music playing
  • A few Ethiopian story books
  • Some banana-leaf artwork to be displayed
  • Some jewelry to be displayed
  • The girls and I will be wearing traditional Ethiopian garb
  • Pictures of injera and other foods
  • Map of Africa with Ethiopia marked on it
  • Drum, baskets, "Desta" doll and other handcrafts
  • Berbere in a bowl (to smell- and taste- if you dare!)

So, what else can I do to make this fun and informative? And yes, it has to be something easily accessible! This will be a presentation to kids (young elementary) and their families, so the age-range will be wide. Any little games we can play? Help me out!
