CELEBRATE Black History Month!!

This product includes 48 different possible research ideas for your students! Some of these amazing African Americans are well known- while others are not. Your students will LOVE researching and finding out information to include in their research flip book. If your students have 1-1 Chromebooks or laptops, I highly recommend this as a project!

These Black History Month Research Flip Books are meant for your students to discover information about their selected person independently. There are 48 different African Americans that your students can research. You can randomly assign to students, or ask them which person they are interested in.


If you are using Google Classroom, it may be helpful to tell your students some approved websites to search information about their selected individual.

I would also remind the students of the categories that they need to be searching for.
