Black History Month Resources on Edcite

As classrooms celebrate Black History Month throughout the month of February, we wanted to share a collection of assignments created by teachers in our community. Incorporate these resources into your lessons to honor great leaders, writers, artists, athletes, and scientists and to help guide students through discussions about civil rights. These assignments can be used not only during Black History Month but year-round in your classroom.
