Welcome to my Best Selling series of Black History Mini-Books! This is the newest set, Set 3 and it's better than ever! For those not used to the books, they consist of one page that is folded into a four page booklet. No cutting, stapling, pasting required, which makes it super easy for even the youngest students to construct! The text is short, sweet, and to the point, highlighting the major accomplishments of the African-American Heroes focused on. These booklets are all black and white to allow for coloring of the booklets. There is a reflective question on the last page with an area for students to demonstrate their comprehension of the text by drawing an illustration or writing their answer to the prompt.
The 13 African-American Heroes focused on in this set are:
~Garrett Morgan (inventor of gas mask and traffic light)
~Lydia Newman (inventor of improved hair brush)
~Dr. Charles Drew (Father of Blood Banks)
~Dr. Daniel Hale (first to do successful open-heart surgery)
~Mary Bethune (teacher devoted to African American education)
~Bessie Coleman (first African American woman pilot)
~Michael Jordan (NBA superstar)
~Althea Gibson (first African American to play in Wimbledon)
~Oprah Winfrey (first African American Billionaire)
~Toni Morrison (Literary Great)
~Mae Jemison (first African American woman in space)
~Shirley Chisolm (first African American woman in Congress)
~Henry Box Brown (slave that mailed himself to freedom in a box)
But that's not all! I made this set extra special by adding some components you will love having! In each mini-book, there is a vocabulary word underlined. I did this so you could preview some of the text before reading for better comprehension. I did make the font smaller so I could add more information in this set. So please be aware that Kinders will need assistance in reading them! There are word wall vocabulary cards and a student vocabulary journal for students to record the definitions throughout the unit. Finally, I've added display cards with each famous African American's photo and name. Your students will love to see the real person they are reading about! So these additions more than doubles the previous sets, without the doubled cost!
Reading these mini-books is an easy way to introduce and/or review the African-American Heroes you're already teaching about during Black History Month and can easily be sent home for homework or used for fluency practice. I'm confident that your students will enjoy these foldables, as will you for their convenience!
You can also find these in a bundle of my two other Mini Foldable Book products:
