Please see the Preview to see the contents of this Black History Month resource. Templates are in black and white to save on ink and allow students to color and customize. I also included a blank back wheel template that can be customized in case you would like to create or ask your own questions.

NOTE: Passages are NOT included in this resource. Answers to this resource are meant to be found through online or printed sources. I made this resource in such a way that students can only write down what they think are the most important of the information they will gather. The finished wheels can then be used for individual presentation in front of the class or within small groups. They can also be placed on bulletin boards or used as writing prompts.

Thanks for you interest in this Black History Month resource. Thanks for being a blessing!☺
