This Famous African-Americans: A Mini Research Project is the perfect Black History Month activity for your middle schoolers. Your students will get to dig into the lives of some of the most influential African Americans in our history, and learn how to conduct responsible online research.
To begin, students will create a booklet that will guide them through the research process. This booklet is structured enough to provide guidance, but still gives students plenty of opportunity to find the information and facts that they find most interesting. This booklet will also provide support as students quote, summarize, and paraphrase the information they find, as well as help in constructing a bibliography in correct MLA format.
This product contains:
• Lesson plans
• Directions for assembling booklets (with pictures!)
• Pages to create booklets for eight prominent African Americans (Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Ruby Bridges, Guion Bluford, Langston Hughes, Harriet Tubman, Thurgood Marshall, and Barack Obama).
• Informative signs for each African American for launching the unit
• Ideas for presenting research (beyond the research paper!)
Thanks so much for shopping! Enjoy :)
