I'm So proud of my school! There have been so many amazing things that teachers have been doing to celebrate Black History Month. I'll include some photos below but we've even started a school wide trivia game. Our PRINCIPAL has been writing trivia questions that sound like this:
There is a medical emergency! We have a transplant that needs to be delievered to a hospital across town. Who would be the best person for the job?
a) Harriet Tubman b) Jesse Owens
c) Martin Luther King, Jr. d) Marian Anderson
I love this school wide challenge because the kids are literally debating who would be the better choice to solve the riddle because in all honesty, there could be more than one legitamite person who would be best for the job. In all honesty, I initially said Harriet Tubman because of her ability to travel long distances...but then Jesse Owens was a really fast star! I ran this by a friend and they hilariously mentioned that Dr. King could get on the phone and have a network of people lined up to get that transplant to the hospital! Ha! This caused them to really do some research and know who these people were in order to defend their choice.
Here are some photos I snapped around our school to show how different classrooms were celebrating Black History Month!
