Having trouble trying to find black history biographies written at a lower grade level?
I researched famous African-Americans and wrote mini-biographies so that my students could learn more than what is written in history books. This packet includes 24 three paragraph biographies. (12 males and 12 females) and 1 fact summary sheet. My students choose a person of their choice, read about them, and fill out a short fact sheet. They then get tested on the common core speaking and listening standards as they teach the class about their hero.
The biographies included are of:
Martin Luther King Jr.
Booker T. Washington
Mary McLeod Bethune
Madam C.J. Walker
