Fact Cards

FACT CARDS… I love them! Why? They give my students the right amount of information about things that they need to know. That is especially important for kids in lower elementary that can get overwhelmed by too much information. Most of my units in my store and that I use in my classroom include fact cards of some sort. We cut them out and store them in a variety of ways.

Sometimes they go in a pocket in our interactive journals…

 Sometimes we make a poster out of them…

Sometimes they’re made into a booklet…

Sometimes they’re made into a foldable…

Ruby Bridges and Black History Month

All during the month of February, we will be learning about African American heroes in celebration of Black History month. Ruby Bridges is absolutely one of my favorite heroes to teach my students about. Mostly, because she was their age when she showed courage and became a hero herself! It’s hard for most of my students to understand what our world was like before the civil rights movement, but her story gives them a glimpse of how things have changed. 

Enjoy this Ruby Bridges FREEBIE that is a sample of my complete African American Heroes – No Prep Unit!

My complete unit covers the following heroes:
o Crispus Attucks
o B.K. Bruce
o Dr. Guion Bluford
o George Washington Carver

o Frederick Douglas
o Dr. Charles R. Drew
o W.E.B. Dubois
o Sarah B. Goode
