In honor of Black History Month, third grade students choose books to read about famous African Americans. Students were encouraged to make their book selections based on possible future goals and careers. Students were given time during reading class to research their person and find more about all the great things this person contributed to our country. They were amazed and inspired of how African Americans touched every part of our lives and all the great things they had accomplished and achieved. Students used information from their books and information gathered from the Alabama Virtual Library to create a Time Capsule Book Report of their person’s life.
