February Fun - Black History Month


It's February The shortest month with the most fun content to teach. Here are some ideas for your for your February plans for Black History Month. There are so many amazing African Americans to introduce to your students that I think it would be okay to extend these lessons past February.

I like using mini lessons to introduce content to my students. There are so many great books that introduce important people. I've put together a pack of some of my favorite books for Black History month.
