Celebrate the accomplishments and study the struggles of African Americans during the month of February.

These worksheets contain a number of different activities using a dedicated set of vocabulary words related to Black History Month, including word search, fill in the blanks, scrambled words, word wall flash cards, acrostic poems, and more. The collection also includes six different packs of Bingo cards, which can be used during discussions of the topics. Last but not least, a KWHL (know, what, how, learn) diagram is included to help students pick a topic to explore in more depth.

Note for instructors: If you have no place for these in your regular curriculum, these worksheets make great project seeds, independent essay topics, or extra credit assignments.
