A quick activity to introduce students to Lucy’s home country – Uganda. Most students are unlikely to know where Uganda is, or anything about this country. They may have some prior knowledge and beliefs about Africa and the people who live there.

This activity could be undertaken either prior to or following viewing the film clip Lucy’s Story, and is suitable for students at all year levels. It will support students’ Geography skills in understanding and using maps, and recognising that people live in different places and have different living conditions.
