Description

Are you looking for a way to integrate black history into your classroom daily, even though it might not be in your curriculum? I was, so I created this product. This is great for any time of year, but specifically for Black History Month in February.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The idea is that cards (which have a Black American photo on the front and a couple sentences about that person on the back) will be put onto necklaces or clips. Everyday your students will get a new necklace for the day. They will read about that American and share with peers, talk about that American at lunch or to their specials teacher, etc. through the day. At the end of the day, there is a “Daily Challenge” that takes mere minutes. The teacher projects or asks the question (or sentence frame) from the challenge card and students respond orally with a partner, group, or as a class with a response for the specific American they have. This can be turned into a writing activity, but will maintain it’s significance just through discussion. By the end of the month your students will have been exposed to multiple figures in black history and will have had deep, meaningful discussions, without having to try to interject lessons into your already crammed pacing.
