This black history month research creation is designed so students can research and write about 19 different African-American heroes. Depending on your grade and students' abilities, the research can be done in the whole group, small groups, or individually. Learning will be recorded on class anchor charts, graphic organizers, and/or in student research journals.

The student pages can be completed separately or made into a black history research journal. You could also research each person separately and only select the ones you choose.
