Every February our country celebrates the contributions that many African-Americans have made to this country. There are many 1st and achievements that are a part of our nation’s history. African-American Inventions is a book that teaches children about everyday items that African-Americans have invented. To introduce the lesson I bring in the items if I can and/or pictures of each invention. As a class who have a discussion about what they are used for and how the world be if it had not been invented. As a follow-up lesson my children color and read the book. You will find the sentence pattern This is, on all of the pages of the book ending with the name of a specific item that was invented. In addition there is a picture for the children to color that matches the sentence. The children will read the following sentences; This is a mop. This is a helicopter. This is a traffic signal. This is a fire extinguisher. This is a shoe. This is a brush. This is a lock. This is a wrench. This is a guitar. This is a pen.

The skills include concepts of print, recognizing sight words, punctuation, sentence structure, and reading comprehension. This book is a great addition to your black history month resources and great way to teach your children about African-American Inventions.
