Do you want to teach your students about important people from black history in a motivating way? Do you have multiple ability levels to address in your class? Look at how this package can help!
Included are the materials for16 different lapbook projects covering important African Americans who are commonly discussed during Black History month. I’ve created three levels of difficulty in a mix-and-match style so you can pick and choose as needed.
Here’s how it works:
First, assign a famous person and print the cover pages. Assign individually, in pairs, or to groups.
Next, choose the pages you’ll want for the side panels on the inside of the lapbook. One set contains all the information needed and only requires cut and paste. The second set requires a small amount of research and the pieces aren’t organized. For example, this set has the digits for the date of birth and death but are given in counting order and must be arranged correctly before attaching to the lapbook.
The third step is to decide how you’d like to provide the main story page for the center of the lapbook. You can choose lined paper with a graphic of the figure for students to write what they’ve learned or you can print a complete story for those not ready to research/write on their own.
Finally, for students ready for a challenge, there is a page for the back of the lapbook containing a quote from the person (when available) with a prompt asking students to infer what the person meant by the quote.
Lapbooking is a fun, hands on way to learn and organize new ideas!
