Right as Rain

Rain Sticks

Young homeschoolers in NBYT’s enrichment program made rain sticks this week! The colored strips on the rain sticks are decorated with story-telling adinkra symbols from West Africa. These props are going to be used in the performance of Rain Song, a folktale from the West African country of Ghana. Students in some of NBYT’s in-school and after-school programs will also make rain sticks and perform the folktale.

We promise though that we aren’t the ones making it rain so much this month! Really!
