What comes from Africa?


What Comes from Africa

Please answer the following questions:

  • What are some of the items you see in this image?
  • Which of these items do you think might come from Africa?
  • Why do you think those items come from Africa? Likewise, in regard to the items you did not include, why do you think those items do not come from Africa?

Things that go into a country are called "imports." Africa receives many imports from the rest of the world, including cars and computers. Things that go out of a country are called "exports."  Africa sends out many exports to the rest of the world, like the ones you answered above! As you can see, we are connected to Africa in many ways!
