Are you looking for a fun and creative way to teach Black History Month? I love to do crafts with young students, since it is a physical representation of what children are learning.
Here are 5 Free Crafts for Black History Month:
Black History Month Activities:
1. Jackie Robinson's Bat
After reading a book about Jackie Robinson, make a bat. All you must do is print out the bat and cut it out. Then have students color it brown, use watercolors, or copy on brown cardstock and cut it out.
2. Ruby Bridges Schoolhouse
Ruby Bridges was a little girl who helped to integrate schools. After learning about her, students can create their own schoolhouse.
3. Rosa Park’s Bus
Rosa Parks helped to protest segregation on buses. Use the school bus template to have children make their own bus.

Use brown tissue paper, crayons, or markers to make a peanut for Dr. George Washington Carver. Children can also list things that are made from peanuts that they use everyday.
