Black History Month for children in kindergarten and first grade explained with a non fiction story. This unit also contains 17 unique templates for craftivities to help the children remember, practice writing and better comprehend the important achievements of these people.
You can use this in the reading/literacy center, as an emergent reader or for group reading. It is also appropriate for a great (hi)story sequence activity.
You can print it or use with your laptop, projector or Ipad in class.
The children learn Black History Month facts in a simple and comprehensive way.
