What educators are saying

I used this last year when we were still long distance. Students were able to use the QR codes pretty easily. They enjoyed reading and learning about influential people.


Deepen your students knowledge of the contributions and achievements of Living Legends, Trailblazers and events in Black history in a fun and engaging way! This set of 32 task cards features a fact about the historic contributions of African Americans or events in history that act as a clue for students to solve. This resource is a great addition to your Black History month lessons, and would also be a great way to lead discussions and create research opportunities throughout the course of the school year.

What a wonderful way to teach unfamiliar parts of history or to learn how much your students already know!
