Black History Month Freebies



I've created a couple of freebies for Black History month. The first is a map and graphic organizer for the book, The Hallelujah Flight. This is the story of James Banning and Thomas Allen. They must overcome many obstacles, including prejudice, as they journey across the US in a dilapidated OXX6 Eagle Rock plane.  Click HERE or on the book  for the link to this free online version.  Have students plot the journey of the "Flying Hobos." Then have them complete the story map. Click HERE or the picture for your free copy.

The next freebie is for older students and goes great with the book, Who Was Rosa Parks. Click HERE or on the book cover for your free online version. After you read the book, have students write a biopoem about Rosa Parks. Click HERE for you free template.

 
For more Black History freebies, check out The Diary of the Not So Wimpy Teacher.

Incorporate technology with Scholastic's interactive Underground Railroad. 

Good luck as continue to create magic in your classroom!

  5. I was unable to find the books (I tried clicking on the book as you suggested and even typed in the title for a search).

    1. I'm sorry it seems they don't offer these books anymore. I wrote this post last year. I didn't realize they discontinue books from their site. That is disappointing. SORRY!!!

    1. Hmm... It doesn't open for me either. Maybe they don't have that book anymore. I searched their site and it was unavailable. So sorry, this post was from last year.

  7. My students did the Underground Secret Letter activity and had a lot of fun and it made for a great bulletin board!
