Black History Person of the Day Cards

This set of 60 daily cards teaches about one person each day who has contributed to history. From Frederick Douglass to Madam C.J. Walker to Jesse Owens to Nelson Mandela to Serena Williams to 55 others in between.

Each card contains their name, picture, and years of life on the front. On the back is a detailed summary of what they were known for and a few facts about their lives. People range from a variety of subjects (art, sports, science, activists, women’s rights, entertainment, etc.) and are mostly from the United States.

The 3 x 3 inch cards are numbered for each day of the month so that one new person can be discussed each day and added to a calendar display. Using the cards this way, you have two months of material. Many of the cards can be used as a jumping off point to study more about the person, time period and/or subject matter.

Black History Sorting Mats

Need a fun, hands on activity for students to review their knowledge of important figures in Black history? These sorting mats will challenge students to recall the information they have studied and use their critical thinking skills to fill in the information they don’t know. By using both hands as well as their language, visual and critical thinking skills, they will engage their whole brain during this activity.

This set contains sorting mats of 30 people, divided and color coded into sets of five.  The people chosen span the last 250 years in history,  and contributed to our world in a variety of ways. There are authors, activists, artists, world leaders, scientists and more!

Students will sort through the facts and match them to each of the five people in that given set.  There is a picture of each person, time lived, place born, and what they are known for.  There are also two additional facts per person that include a variety of interesting information.

Who became a published author even though she could not read?

Who signed a record deal at age 11?

Who received their musical training in a juvenile detention center’?

Who started anchoring the news at age 19?

Who tried to overthrow their government and later became president?

Who entered college at age 15?

And so much more! An answer key is included for students to self-check their work.

Print and prep once and then use for years. Not only great for Black History Month, but can be used all year as part of a history curriculum.
