The month of February is the month for so many celebrations, but it is also a month filled with historic relevance! It's time to celebrate our presidents and it's the month to examine the contributions of African Americans and to investigate Black History. Yet, despite having so many reasons to step from our traditional content to teach these topics, we are stressed with a lack of time due to snow days, testing, and other interruptions to our classroom schedules.
That leaves a decision for you to make... Will you address the holidays and teach your students about the contributions made by these groups? Of course, you will!
Here's a few helpful resources to get you through the celebrations and back on course in your Social Studies or ELA classes!
- Take a Walking Tour with the Presidents!
- Play President Scavenger Hunt!
- Review the Presidents with a Presidents Matching Game!
- Investigate Important African Americans with a Biography Card Set!
- Evaluate the Contributions of the Civil Rights Movement Heroes!
Mardi Gras - Take a Walking Tour of the Mardi Gras and paint the day purple, green and gold!
And before you know it, March will be here. Will you be ready?
