February is Black History Month.

As we get ready for Black History Month, I have brought together the Black History Month Collection by Destiny to share the best resources and practices I could find. 

You will find Newsela Text Sets for Black History MonthStoryboard That activities, a STEM activity from Maker Maven6 Teaching Tools for Black History Month from Edutopia and Black History Month Activities, History, Timeline, Ideas, Event, Facts and Quizzes from Fact Monster just to name a few.
