Every year I am on the lookout for activities to help celebrate Black History Month in the classroom. This year I decided to create my own and I want to share them with you.
I created 24 “Who Am I?” cards featuring African Americans, 11 women and 13 men, that can be played as a game or just enjoyed as fact cards. The cards are bright and attractive and include an African kente cloth border, image of each individual and 5 interesting facts.
The game can be played by 2 or more players. Students are given clues and the sooner they guess correctly the more points they earn. The game can be played daily, starting with a few cards and adding more as you go along. Soon you will be able to play with all the cards and students will be answering quickly.
I also added a template (2 sizes, color/b/w) so students can create their own “Who Am I?” card. Once they have chosen their subject they will need to add facts to their card. It’s not numbered so you can choose how many they add. You can add these to the game or even a bulletin board. Or if you prefer they could write a mini-bio of the African American they chose. The template is perfect for either.
…and because I used U.S.postage stamps for this packet I also included a template for students to create their own Black Heritage stamp. The U.S. post office allows stamps to be used freely for educational purposes.
Laminate the “Who Am I?” cards and your students will enjoy them for years to come!
24 colorful African American “Who Am I?” cards (3 1/2 x 5)
Templates for students to create their own cards(color and b/w) aprox. 5x7 and 7x9

Below are two of the 24 cards
Students will enjoy creating their own Black Heritage stamps just like the U.S. Post Office. Hope that you can use them. :-)
Hope you stop by my TpT store and check them out.
