Let your students express themselves for Black History Month using this 8.5 x 11 Black History poster. This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom as the February approaches, and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
The poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.
If you are reading a story about Famous African Americans. or watching a movie about historical events, this would be a great follow-up activity for reflection.
You could also use as a center activity or even as morning work. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
