Celebrate Black History Month by studying Famous African American Scientists! This worksheet resource is a great stand alone mini-lesson or as an add on to the "Famous African American Scientists Power Point" found in The Sea Turtle Scientist Store. This resources focuses on 24 of the most famous African American Scientists and Inventors. The worksheet is formatted so students can fill in important information for each scientist and comes with a teacher key. It can also be cut apart and used to play a great game of bingo! Celebrate Black History Month, History, Science, and fun all at one time.
I most commonly use this resource as I am going over the "Famous African American Scientists Power Point". I present the power point and the students fill in their worksheet as I go through the slides. I then have the students set their paper aside and fill out a blank bingo board with the names of the scientists from their papers. I then cut up a teachers key and place the pieces of paper in a basket where I draw the names and the students can use their fill-in-the-blank notes an play a few rounds of bingo. In this way students who are learn from hearing hear as I present the power point, those who learn from writing or are visual can learn from the worksheet and those who learn by doing can master the content by bingo!
