Black History Month With The English Teacher Megan (3rd & 4th Grade)

The Penguins (3rd Grade)

The students were asked to choose between a man or a woman, and then were randomly assigned an important or influential African American person to research. They were given articles to read, and then had to find 10 facts about their person. The students took these facts to create their posters. 

The Cheetahs (4th Grade)

The students were assigned a person to research from a biography book that was provided. We had practiced writing summaries on a few other famous African Americans, in preparation for writing a summary of the person they were assigned. After a few rough drafts, the students wrote out their finished summary on their posters and were able to illustrate with a photo or drawing of their person.
