    Black History Timeline

    I have my students choose a Black American, past or present, from a book or the internet.
    They decide on a date that represents that person (year of accomplishment, year of birth, etc.) Next they write a short paragraph about the accomplishment (historical data). they decide on a visual to help demonstrate the accomplishment. I give them the exact format of how to put the information together on a 9 by 12 piece of construction paper. Basically the year is in the same place on every paper so then we can display them in a timeline. I give extra points for choosing a Black American I don't know. I've had some truly interesting projects. I have a sign up sheet so I don't have duplicates. I also prohibit King, Parks, & Tubman because they have already studied them. If you would like the complete format my email is
