Why I Love this Resource:
I've been having my first grade students research influential black Americans for several years now. I love that it gives them a chance to do their own research (with support from their family). My students can't wait to come into class with their "findings" and discuss what they learned. This is something they have shared with their parents or guardians and can now share with the class.
I LOVE that there are 84 people to select from. It provides lots of options!
When all of the research has been finished we will transfer the information in our neatest printing to the banner pages. The kids will be so excited when we hang them up together in the hallway to not only show everyone all of our hard work- but also to share everything we've learned!
