Total Tennis Takeover!
Quite the description for one tennis great, Serena Williams!
I created this product so that students could learn more about her great accomplishments, and of the course that it took to reach such heights. Serena Williams is a living legend in history. Black History Month is a wonderful time to study and celebrate her, but truly, her accomplishments can be celebrated at any time of the year.
Serena Williams inspires us:

~To compliment a unit on sports/athletics
~To inspire students to persevere
~United States history
