Tomorrow is my first day in my second grade classroom (LTS). On Friday I found out that there is a door decorating contest for Black History Month. It is recommended that we pick an inventor and there must be as much student work on it as possible. I have this entire week to work with my class on this and the doors will be judged next week.
Any tips? Advice? Suggestions? I'm excited to do this-- what a great learning opportunity for my students!-- but I feel like I don't even know where to begin! Who would be a great person for my second-graders (some of whom are lower-level learners) to profile/learn about? Currently I'm leaning toward George Washington Carver.
Thanks in advance!!
P.S. If this is in the wrong forum, or if I somehow missed a thread on Black History Month, please accept my apology!!
