Black History Month: Research Activities for Teens
Black History Month: Research Activities for Teens

Are you looking for some fun independent research activities for your students to do when learning about Black History?

This resource is really easy to use in your classroom – there are 16 printable worksheets which have the name and picture of some of the heroes of Black History: some are well-known and others are unsung heroes.

Students can then undertake their own research (at home or in lessons) to find out more about these people, and then reflect on why they think they are so inspirational and have made such a positive impact on Black History. There is also a blank version at the end for students to research their own hero!

Resource includes:
• Martin Luther King Jr.
• Frederick Douglass
• Harriet Tubman
• Mary Seacole
• George Washington Carver
• Booker T. Washington
• Rosa Parks
• Muhammad Ali
• Malcolm X
• William H. Hastie
• Maya Angelou
• Thurgood Marshall
• Nelson Mandela
• James Meredith
• Ruby Bridges
• Elijah McCoy

This is great way for students to do some background research on some of the heroes that have shaped Black History and can be completed at home or during a lesson - there are plenty to choose from!
These worksheets would also look great displayed on a wall display or stapled into a booklet for students to keep!
