Product Description

Black History Month: These 24 pop-up WRITING activities are specialized to create great artifacts and memories for Black History! Fun, easy, and unique to your taste. Completely original, and designed in a way that your kids will be able to assemble the book and reflect on famous African-American's in history and write about it when finished. Pictures will help students to write famous events and people who changed history.

You and/or the students choose the pictures, offered in both black and white and color.

Students can then write about what they did and learned during their Black History unit or perhaps write a creative letter to take home to parents. How you use the book is entirely up to you! Students can write about a famous Black-American, or they can just write different words they know that relate to the Black History Month. Use it how you want it, and scaffold appropriately.

One large image is fitted to go in the middle, and two smaller images go on the sides.

Kids will love taking the stories home each day, or making a book. (Cover included)
