This Kidspiration template contains text from the story and questions requiring the students to make inferences.

In this fun Kidspiration activity students use the symbol maker to create their own Adinkra symbols and Adinkra cloth. After they "stamp" their cloth they give the meaning for their symbols and an explanation of what their cloth is "saying."
