I know this is a little late but here are some of our activities for Black History Month.
We read a lot of stories, but our favorite was The Story of Ruby Bridges. The story really had an impact on my students. They could not believe that a little girl their age could be so brave! This was a fantastic refresher on character traits.
Since we are in the middle of a Letter Writing Unit we wrote letters to Ruby. After an easy, little craftivity, they made a cute display!
I made the templates for the craftivity. If you are interested in them, let me know!
