Terrific Resource for Black History Month!

Your students will learn about 24 historical African Americans while playing this fun "Who Am I?" game. These attractive cards are bright and colorful with an African kente cloth border and image of each individual.

The game can be played by 2 or more players. Students are given clues and the sooner they guess correctly the more points they earn. The game can be played daily, starting with a few cards and adding more as you go along. Soon you will be able to play with all the cards and students will be answering quickly.

I also added a template (2 sizes, color/b/w) so students can create their own "Who Am I?" card. Once they have chosen their subject they will need to add facts to their card. It's not numbered so you can choose how many they add. You can add these to the game or even a bulletin board. Or if you prefer they could write a mini-bio of the African American they chose. The template is perfect for either.

...and because I used U.S.postage stamps for this packet I also included a template for students to create their own Black Heritage stamp. The U.S. post office allows stamps to be used freely for educational purposes.

Laminate the "Who Am I?" cards and your students will enjoy them for years to come!
