Make Your Own Mancala Board

Make Your Own Mancala Board


First developed in the Middle East as far back as 8,000 years ago, mancala became a popular game that was made, played, and shared around the world. In addition to an easy-to-learn but hard-to-master game, mancala also played important cultural and spiritual roles for different West African communities. In honor of Black History Month, students will learn about the history of mancala in Africa, design their own mancala boards and learn how to play.
