    Sports In Africa Sports In Africa Presentation Transcript

    • Sports in Africa By: Dan Kim
    • Essential Question
      • How does sports effect people’s lives in Africa?
    • Why I chose this topic?
      • I chose this topic because I like sports and I wanted to know if Africans enjoy playing sports.
    • What I already know
      • I already know that Africans play sports.
      • I know that sports are important to them
    • What sports do Africa play?
      • A really popular sport in Africa is soccer.
      • For most countries soccer is the national sport.
      • Africa plays netball, cricket, squash, handball, and lawn bowling.
    • Ethnic groups connecting to Sports
      • Ethnic groups make the sports Africa play really competitive.
      • They play really rough but they also have really good sportsmanship.
      • Ethnic group makes it easy to create teams because they’re already in groups.
    • African sports league
      • Africa has a lot of leagues for basketball, soccer and other sports.
      • Africa participates in Fifa world cup and the Olympics and other leagues.
    • The Impact Sports Have on Kids
      • Kids play sports even when pouring rain.
      • Since Africa schools can’t afford many of the equipment needed kids can’t participate in sports even if they do have equipment it is very bad.
    • Apartheid and Sports
      • Due to apartheid Africa was absent from a lot of international sports.
      • Recently apartheid was not allowed so now Africans can play the sports they love.
      • Because of Apartheid Africans were banned from the Olympic games and people started boycotting it.
    • Questions I still have
      • When was sports first introduced in Africa?
      • Who is the best athlete in Africa?
    • What surprised me
      • That kids still go out to play sports when raining. Also that Africans weren’t allowed to participate in sports
