Presenting - Black History Month! With this file, you get 2 blank banners to use at your discretion. Allow students to chose, or you assign, a note worthy African American, past or present, to research. February is Black History Month (or African History Month) in the US, so this gives us a great opportunity to learn about the role these fascinating individuals played in American history, individuals who are sometimes downplayed or left out of the history books altogether.. These Black History Month banner pages can also be used throughout the year as you reach the time period the various men and women belong to.
The completed Black History banner is will look great as a hallway display or bulletin board in your classroom. You can staple / glue the pieces to ribbon and hang them, or you can simply staple them to a bulletin board. They are designed to be a banner, but they don't have to be connected.

Find some history books, turn your computers and tablets on, and enjoy learning about some new people. Have the students check out books and complete it as an in-class project. You can even take this a step further by turning it into an oral presentation, giving students a chance at practicing public speaking. Students can also use the banner pieces as an organizer and then use the information to do a more formal writing, such as a five paragraph essay.
