Children read a short biography of the African-American inventor George Washington Carver, who discovered hundreds of products that could be made from peanuts. Then, they color in his picture. Use this worksheet as a supplement to your Black History Month (February) unit.
Engage children in literature that fosters an appreciation of the African-American culture and role models. Complete lesson plans with poems, songs, book lists, hand-on activities, and more.
