San People - People Of The Desert

San People - People Of The Desert

Archaeologists believe that the San people have been living in the Kalahari Desert for 30,000 years. That would make the San people the most ancient race! Some archaeologists think the San have been living in Africa for 80,000 years! About a thousand years ago, when another African tribe moved south into the Kalahari Desert area, they were surprised to find the San people already living there. These worksheets help students to research and develop an understanding of how the San People live and survive in the harsh environment of the desert. To show their understanding of this they conclude by writing a diary in the daily life of one of the tribes people.
