Term 4: A Heritage trail through the provinces of South Africa

Map of South Africa with provinces.

We have a rich and diverse heritage that belongs to all South Africans today. In this topic we take a heritage trail through the provinces of South Africa highlighting the rich and diverse heritage that belongs to all South Africans.  We learn about each province and what importance it hold for us.

Heritage can be tangible and intangible. Tangible heritage includes things we can see and touch. Intangible heritage includes things such as our family heritage, religion, praise poetry, music, songs, dance and festivals. This heritage trail takes us to places in different parts of South Africa and looks at some of the things of significance that we have inherited from the past.

These sections all include one example in most Provinces taken from the CAPS 2011 document and will be updated at a later stage to include more items.
