Looking for suitable activities for your students that are more than just worksheets for Black History month? This engaging Garrett Morgan reading and craft activity is a simple way for grades K-1 to be introduced to the life of the inventor who introduced the concept of traffic control.

Can be used for guided and whole class teacher directed reading with more able kindergarteners, first graders and second graders. Also helpful for small RTI groups.
