Wow your students during black history month with this unique stretch book about ten American heroes from the past and present. This set also includes posters that summarize the accomplishments of each person. Hang the posters around your room and have your students find each person, read the summary, and write a sentence on the stretch book.
The following heroes are included:
1. Frederick Douglas
2. Harriet Tubman
3. George Washington Carver
4. Rosa Parks
5. Martin Luther King, Jr.
6. Maya Angelou
7. Muhammad Ali
8. Oprah Winfrey
9. Dr. Mae Jemison
10. Barack Obama
Stretch books are made by folding three paper squares using an origami fold. Here is a video you may want to watch
to get an idea of what a stretch book entails. My product includes detailed step-by-step photo illustrations that show how to assemble the book. Just print the pages, and you are ready to fold! I highly recommend that you fold and assemble your own stretch book before making them with students. The learning curve is well worth it in the end! :-)
If students are folding and assembling their own books, this product is appropriate for students in 4th grade and up. The stretch book could be used with younger students if it is pre-assembled or if you are working with a student one-on-one.
