At the Heart of Black History

February is jam packed with great teaching themes…dental health, Valentines Day, Groundhog Day, President’s Day, and Black History.  On Friday, we learned about some famous African Americans.  I gave each student a heart with a name and a white heart for the inside.
Some of the names looked familiar to some, (Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Muhammad Ali, etc.) but many were new names.  I went through each name and gave them a quick one  sentence fact about each person.  {For example, George Crum invented potato chips.}  Then each person wrote down the fact about their person on their white heart and glued it inside the red heart. 
Our bulletin board is titled “At the Heart of Black History.”

I included a blank one if you would rather have your students write the names.
I am excited to be participating in the Filling Your Hearts blog hop with Freebie-licious.

  1. I love this whole concept. While my kinders are not ready for writing the sentences yet, I'll bet we have the only bulletin board with this focus on the primary wing wall. Thank you!
