This year my students have been focusing a lot on gathering outside research and conducting their own investigations to learn more about several topics throughout the year. This Black History Month research project was intended for students to learn more about notable African Americans who left behind a valuable legacy. Each student was assigned an African American based on the list. My 1st graders were provided with articles and books they could use as references to conduct their research.
Included in this bundle is:
KWL Charts for each of the African Americans
Timelines for each of the African Americans
Remembering… Informational Sheet
Heart that can be used to show the togetherness of African Americans and whites using handprints
Circle Map to gather prior knowledge or as a post-assessment
Tree Map to help classify each of the African Americans
