Sudan and South Sudan: Colonialism, Conflict, and the Growing Pains of a New Nation

This lesson plan was created by Amy Jones (Sigourney CSD) for students in sixth grade and was supported by the Mid-Iowa School Improvement Consortium (MISIC). By completing this lesson plan, students will understand the concept of colonialism by comparing and contrasting America with Africa's colonial rule, and also discover how this often contributes to contemporary conflict by igniting cultural differences.
