This is a project I created to use during Black History Month for my sixth and seventh grade students. There is a website provided where students can research and record information on famous/important contributions of African American scientists.
My students loved it and learned a lot! They were constantly calling me over to their desks to show me the person they had found.
This activity was also a great way to show students ALL the different aspects of the science field. The scientists are divided up into categories (Biotechnologists, Biologists, Zoologists, etc.)
