Teaching FUN for end of FEB

21 Feb

It’s almost time to say goodbye February, hello March! Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day have come and gone, however Black History Month is still in full swing!

Here are 5 fun and easy teacher-tested ideas to help you teach your students during Black History Month.

  1. Have your students select an influential person related to Black History and represent them to the class.  (2012’s theme is “Black Women in American Culture and History”)
  2. Write a play about women who influenced the abolition movement.
  3. Integrate tidbits about black history and culture into every subject you teach.
  4. Select art by influential black artists and use the pictures to decorate your classroom.
  5.  Write rhythmic songs that mimic the music movement in black history.

Do you have a favorite Black History Month activity or lesson that would like to share?
