Are you looking for an informational Black History reading packet for your students this year? Then look no further! This packet includes thirteen non-fiction comprehension passages that were designed to reinforce comprehension and fluency while teaching students about outstanding African Americans of US History. Students must read each passage three times, and then color a star for each time they read it. They will then answer questions about the passage. This packet is a great addition to any Black History Month activities you might have planned! It works great for the class as a whole, groups, centers, or homework.

Non-fiction passages include:

-Frederick Douglass

-Wilma Rudolph

-George Washington Carver

-Booker T. Washington

-Harriet Tubman

-Rosa Parks

-Phyllis Wheatley

-Jackie Robinson

-Martin Luther King Jr.

-Sojourner Truth

-Tuskegee Airmen

-Ruby Bridges

-Thurgood Marshall
