Whether you are a teacher in the classroom, homeschooling parent or a parent who is wanting to provide some educational activities at home for your family, one thing we all have in common is that it can get expensive! Today I think that just my two girls alone put a big dent in my arts and crafts supplies and there is no doubt that I need a new printer cartridge, so it’s always exciting when we can find free resources! Here’s a few I’ve found for you for your Black History Month learning:
- The Emancipation Proclamation Commerative Coloring Book, Historic Places of the Civil Rights Movement and historical African American resources are all available at the Federal Resources for Educational Excellence along with 69 other resources. While you are there you can search for information on government, ethnic groups, special people throughout history and more.
- Visit Gale Cengage Learning for Biographies, Wallpapers, Activities, Timelines and Quizes.
- Visit Holidays PPST for Powerpoint presentations for the classroom or home, games, quizes, activities for the kids and lesson plans for teachers.
- NEA offers up several lesson plans, activities, printables, audio and visual resources for your Black History month lessons or enrichment activities. There are a TON here and among the many available for all age groups some of my favorites include Jazz: PBS Kids and African American Scientists and Inventors.
