What educators are saying

This was such an amazing resource for our Black History celebration...awesome hands on activities and craft for my studentS!
My students loved creating all of the different people included in this resource. Each day the students couldn't wait to learn about someone new.


Do you need cute and easy crafts for Black History Month? You got them! This set has SIX crafts or craftivities of African American inventors and their inventions: George Carver, George Crum, Lewis Latimer, Garrett Morgan, Philip Downing, and Alfred Cralle. These crafts will make a fantastic bulletin board for Black History Month or can be used for your school hallway decoration! Next time your students crunch on a potato chip, get a scoop of ice cream, eat a peanut butter sandwich, look at a traffic light, see a mailbox, or turn the lights on and off, they will know that all these things exist thanks to African American inventors!

This product now has the perfect companion – African American Inventors PowerPoint! It describes each of the inventors pictured in this set and it has all the bells and whistles to keep your young students engaged: animations, sound effects, discussion questions, and even a quiz! It's interactive, user-friendly and it requires ZERO prep time! Please see it in my store in “Black History Month” custom category or simply click here:

I also have African American Inventors (Book) in my store as an alternative to the African American Inventors interactive PowerPoint. I realize there are schools that may not have the technology needed for the PowerPoint presentation in their classrooms. If that’s your case, just print my book instead and read it to or with your students.
