PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Honoring Important African-Americans Research Project allows upper elementary and middle grade students (grades 5-8 with some modifications) an opportunity to research one of 40 major African-Americans from many different walks of life and present their findings in a biographical essay.

These individuals include activists, scientists, musicians, trailblazers, politicians, inventors, athletes, and many more!

That's right: there are 40 individuals to choose from!

This research project is ideal for Black History Month -- or any time of the year.

There is also an optional digital storytelling component utilizing the free iPad app, Shadow Puppet EDU. This part of the project again is optional. Students can still complete the biographical essay.

All handouts are included. Please check the preview before buying. I have also included Common Core Anchor Standards I have met with this project. There is a brief pacing guide/set of instructions, a rubric, and handouts to allow students to better understand the writing process.

Please see the preview for an idea of what is available here. Thank you!
