These are directions for students and parents about a poster and report project for Black History Month. This can be done at home or at school depending on the time you have. Students select a famous African American and then do research on this person. I have included a parent letter, famous African American people choices, lined paper for older kids, primary lined paper for younger kids, a picture frame for illustrating their person of choice, and a grading rubric. Students are asked to research the person's early life, later life, accomplishments, how the person changed the world, as well as other basic facts.
