This month we celebrate Black History Month and at www.missmaggie.org we have designed dozens of related activities over the years that will help you applaud the amazing contributions of these scientists, artists, physicians, writers, philanthropists, and more in your classroom. Find these activities and more stored in our treasure trove.
This time of year we also like to plan activities that will help prepare your students for the inevitable standardized testing which springs up this time of year. One of the key lessons we all impart is the importance of referring back to the text/article for answers. By breaking this task into smaller units, as some of our activities due, it prompts your students to focus on the importance of this critical skill. As we prepare for more standardized testing, let us know what other activities you would like for us to offer.
