Studying black history month?! This is a great project for students to be assessed at the end of your unit. This project includes everything and no prepping is necessary. It gives students detailed examples of the project and explanation. Students can go to the library or research further online, but there really is no need because 13 great African Americans already come with a print out about them. The students can do a close read and identify facts about their African American. Need to tie in a writing assignment as well? No problem this project comes with an extra credit assignment (personal narrative). The student pretends to spend a day in the life of their African American and write a journal entry. An example is supplied. Enjoy!! My kids loved this project and did an excellent job!
