Black History Month only comes around once a year, but we like to learn about it all year long!
With all of the important accomplishments African-Americans have made to U.S. history, it’s hard to fit it all into one month.
So we don’t even try.
Instead, we talk about notable African-Americans as often as possible. And there are new people to learn about all the time!
If you’re ready to introduce your students to African-Americans who’ve made history, these black history figure puzzles are a perfect way to get started!
These history puzzles are so fun for elementary students who are getting to know about the important achievements of black Americans!
