Fun History Project Ideas & Hands-On Activities

History lessons can be dry and boring if you rely completely on a dry and boring textbook. But there is a better way!

It’s so easy to make history come alive with the right books and resources. One of the best ways to make your history lessons fun and interesting is with well-planned hands-on history projects.

No matter the time period you’re studying, there are some activity ideas you can easily include. Hands-on history projects are a wonderful way to make history lessons come alive for your kids. Now, you don’t need to do a hands-on project every day – but a few well-planned projects can make all the difference.

Hands-on history activities and projects can: 

It’s so easy to become passive learners – read this, fill out that worksheet… blah… blah… blah… However, when we find ways to engage our kids in their learning, it makes such a difference. You can do this will read aloud, interesting assignments, and of course, hands-on projects and activities.

fun history assignments

Engaging the minds (and hands) of our kids makes all the difference in their educational experience. Now that you’re convinced to add some hands-on fun to your homeschool day, how should you do it?

Don’t fill your days with meaningless activities. One well-planned and executed activity each week will go much further than a day filled with boring and mindless activities. Best of all, you don’t need a pile of activity books or resources. With just a handful of ideas that can be applied to any time period or culture will be just as useful.

I’ve put together my favourite ways in which we create hands-on learning experiences for History lessons, but as always I’d love to know yours too – so, if there’s one I’ve missed be sure to leave me a comment.

Learn About The Artists Of The Time

Create a lap book, immerse yourself in the time period & culture, play a game, create a map, build a 3d model, create a timeline, do some creative writing.

When you’re immersing yourself in the culture or time period, take a look at the art from that era or geographical area. Artists, their lives and artwork give us a glimpse of life during that time – how the people dressed and what was important to them.

Lapbooks and notebooks are a great way to create a capsule of all the things your kids are learning.

They can create little mini-books and interactive booklets filled with details about the time period, the people, the culture… really, anything that interests them. They are a great choice for research assignments.

Kids can research a specific topic and include the information they find in their lap book or notebook. Best of all, a completed notebook or lap book becomes a great addition to your year-end portfolio – displaying everything your kids have studied and learned that year.

Well-thought-out activities can really immerse you and your kids in the culture and time period of a certain people.

Confession: I know so much about ancient Egyptian history ( believe me, I knocked it out of the park watching a recent episode of Jeopardy and knew the answer to every question for that category! ).

fun history assignments

Why did that happen? Because of how we’ve immersed ourselves in our lessons during that subject – researching maps, making our own fruity mummy, reciting a list of important pharaohs, reading the myths and stories of the people.

No matter the time period or country you’re studying you can apply this in a few different ways:

I love to include games whenever I can – they are such a great learning resource – and who wouldn’t rather play a game than fill out a worksheet?

It can get expensive buying games for every time period you study. Instead, you can opt to find online games or purchase downloadable plans for games that you put together yourself (the bonus being it’s a great craft too!)

Tip: we love to listen to audiobooks while we color, cut out, and assemble our game boards.

Some of my favourite history games available include;

Of course, this is just the beginning, a quick Google will help you find hidden gems specifically related to the person or time period your studying. For example, we did some work on Rosa Parks recently and simply googled ‘Rosa Parks Games’ you can add on a specific age or grade if you’re looking for something specific.

We had thousands of results and the top ten were more than sufficient to keep us going for a couple of weeks! I also found a whole host of new websites to bookmark and use as resources for the future which was a huge bonus.

Understanding how one country fits into the geography of an area brings a whole new level of understanding about that place. Taking time to study that country – its hills, borders, mountains, and other details – can help you see their culture and life in a new way.

fun history assignments

You can look at historical atlases or maps. Alternatively, if you’re looking to incorporate crafts then download and print, then color in or even draw your own map of the area.

Consider taking it to the next level and making it even more hands-on by incorporating salt-dough, cookie dough or play dough. We recently covered the Olympics and how they are incorporated into our history both as a nation and worldwide, to make the learning experience more hands-on we followed this incredible salt dough DIY to make some super fun Olympic medals.

Does the country or historical era you’re currently studying have any interesting buildings or inventions? These could be perfect 3D construction models. Either from pre-made kits available online or as a craft.

fun history assignments

For example, the 1930s was the decade in which the Empire State Building was built in New York City. The 102-story Art Deco skyscraper is a fantastic demonstration of the architecture in the 1930s and leads onto a discussion surrounding building materials and skyscrapers / high rise building structures.

This free printable allows you to print off a model of the Empire State Building which can be made into a 3D model. Alternatively, consider using construction blocks such as Lego or Duplo .

A history timeline is a wonderful project that every middle school child should create. Seeing how historical events and people fit together gives them a better understanding of historical context and how all those events and people are interrelated.

fun history assignments

You can create one large timeline for the whole period you are studying or, if that feels a bit overwhelming, smaller topic-based timelines can be just as useful.

Consider displaying this timeline in your homeschooling room, in a bedroom or storing it safely so you can get it out and reference/add to it as your knowledge of historical events improves. These free history timelines are perfect for getting you started .

You can look to take this to the next level with a family tree or family timeline too. This is a great way to discuss important dates such as the years grandparents were born and what special events happened during that year. Get the children to interview the member of the family about what life was like back then – they could even write a report on what life was like which leads us nicely onto our final history project idea.

For those kids who love journaling and creative writing, history is a great place to let their creativity run wild. They can journal as if they lived during that time period, ‘interview’ a famous figure of the time, or create their own writing assignment ideas.

This is a great way for children to also improve on their spelling, grammar, research and more…

fun history assignments

For a more long-term creative writing project, consider a newspaper. Publish a report once a week as you move through the years week by week. With 52 weeks in a year, you could cover 52 years and of course, this doesn’t have to start when newspapers started. Instead, you could report as though you’re living in Aztec times if you wanted.

Alternatively, you could adapt the reports depending on the time of year. For example, New Year’s eve in the 1930s, Halloween in the 1970s or Christmas in the 1870s.

If your kids are fond of being in front of the camera, consider getting them to record the report on a video camera instead of writing it down. They could even dress the part too.

Leonardo da Vinci Art Projects For School Kids

Everything you wrote here is so inspiring! From my experience I know that using games is way more fun than flashcards or worksheets! And, as a bonus, most games require at least the skills of strategy and/or speed, too. Each parent should carefully watch their child and adjust the number of tasks to their abilities. It is better to do less practice than force your child to solve tasks which they no longer want to do and which can. We want our children to develop through play. Chess is the perfect example for this matter. Don’t try to play entire game from the very begining of your chess adventure. Use diagrams like those – net-bossorg/chess-puzzles-for-kids-by-maksim-aksanov. Perfect diagrams for the perfect start 🙂

Thank you for making this.

Top 10 Fun Activities for ANY History Class!

Fun Ideas for History Class!

Turn YOUR Social Studies class into your students favorite class!

Are you looking for ways to make your social studies class more engaging and fun? If so, then I have some great news for you! There are SO many ways you can spice up your history class and make it a lot more engaging and fun for your students.

Unfortunately, a lot of teachers struggle coming up with various ways to incorporate fun and engaging activity ideas into their lesson plans (including me!).

BUT , as I have found out over the years, there are so many specific historical events and important historical figures throughout history (whether it's U.S. history or world history) to base a fun and interactive learning activity off of. History is just one of those subjects that students either love or hate. And if they don’t love it, they probably hate it, making it that much harder to get them engaged. Classroom activities are a great addition to any lesson plan and can greatly enhance a students' knowledge and comprehension of a topic with seemingly minimal effort on the part of the teacher. Activities can come in many forms from fun games and exit tickets, to interactive notebooks and class discussion. Activities can also be used in a collaborative or individual manner. Many of my favorite classroom activities afford me the ability to place students into small groups, break up half of the class into two larger groups, or even have the students participate individually. Luckily, it can be relatively easy to make any dry subject engaging and fun . This article provides some great ideas and effective ways on how to do just that with your history lessons.

In no particular order, here are my top 10 favorite activities for teaching history no matter what time of the school year it is!

#1: research projects.

One of the best ways to make history engaging for your students is to have them research topics themselves (through the use of primary sources!) . This will help them to see just how interesting the past can be and why it is important to learn about it. If you have a research project in your history class, then it is likely that your students will love this subject even more. When students have a project of their own to work on, then it makes them feel like they are actually making progress in this class. There are so many topics that you can assign your students to research, from ancient civilizations to modern technologies. You can even assign them to research a historical event of their choice. When they are working on a research project, they will not only learn more about their own topic, but they will also learn about other topics too. This will help them to see how everything is connected and works together. If your students are given the choice over what they want to research, then it will make them more invested in this subject.

#2: Let Students Draw Historical Events as Comics

One of the most unique ways I've gotten my students more interested in history is by having them draw a comic strip based on an event or topic in history. This is a great way for your students to learn more about the event and to practice their creative skills. You could let your students choose any event in history that interests them and have them create a comic strip based on it. Or you could have them draw comic strips about different topics in your history lesson. This is a great way to have your students visualize what they have learned in their history class. This will help them to remember the information and make connections between different events. It is important to check that your students know how to draw a comic strip properly. This is something that you will want to make sure they know how to do before letting them draw one.

#3: Sum up the most important points at the end of each lesson

Another great way to make your history lessons more fun and engaging is to summarize the most important points from each lesson at the end of each class. You can do this by having your students create small groups and discussing what they learned during the period. Each group can then present one point that they think is the most important and why. Skipping the summary at the end of each lesson is one of the biggest mistakes that history teachers can make. By skipping this part of the lesson, you’re basically telling your students that what they learned is not important and should be forgotten. However, this is not the case at all! Every lesson in history is important. Every lesson has something important to teach us. Summarizing each lesson at the end and making sure that your students understand this is a great way to show them that you care about them and their education.

#4: Card Games

Card games are a great way to engage your students in lots of different subjects, including history. There are so many different card games based on historical events and topics. These are a great way to learn more about these events and people while having fun and being competitive. There are lots of different card games available online that are based on different historical events. There are also plenty of card game collections that include cards based around different historical topics. This way you can choose the cards that best fit your lesson and have your students play with them. Card games are a great way to practice skills such as critical thinking, teamwork and communication. Having your students play card games based on history is a great way to engage your class and make learning fun. Once you have finished your lesson, you can keep the cards and use them again on another day. This way you can create an ever-growing deck of cards that can be used in multiple ways.

#5: Group Discussions

If you want to make your history lessons more engaging, you can try having your students engage in group discussions. These discussions can focus on a specific period of history or a specific topic related to history. They can also focus on current events that are related to a certain period of history. Having your students engage in group discussions is a great way for them to express their thoughts, feelings, and ideas about the subject they’re studying in a safe and open environment. It’s also a great way to get them to critically think about the topics they’re learning about and to come to their own conclusions. Having your students engage in group discussions is a great way to make your history lessons more engaging. It’s a great way to get your students thinking critically about the topics they’re studying in a safe and open environment. It’s a great way to encourage

#6: Understanding the Past: Teaching with Ghosts, Ruins, and Oral Histories

Historical events are something that you will always come across when teaching any type of history class. These events are a great topic to learn more about and can be used in many different ways to engage your students. After studying an event in history, you can have your students create a Ghost Story based around that. This can be done in a few different ways. You can either have your students write a story or create a comic strip. This is a great way for them to learn more about the event and for them to see how it might have played out. You can also have them create a video where they act out the event or have it narrated by an actor. This way your students will have fun while learning about the event and will remember it even more. This is a great activity for both younger and older students. You can also have your students create a Ruin that represents an event in history. This could be done in many different ways. Your students could draw a picture or create a model. They could even create a stop-motion video. You can have your students choose any event in history that interests them and create a Ruin that represents it. This will help them to learn more about the event and make it come to life.

#7: Writing Activities

Writing is a skill that many students take for granted. They are often so focused on grammar and spelling that they don’t realize how important their writing skills are. When teaching history, you can have your students write about different topics and events in history. This will help them to practice their writing skills and learn more about their history class. You could have your students write a narrative story about an event or write an article about a certain topic. You could also have them write a letter or journal entry from the perspective of someone from the past. There are so many different ways that you can have your students write in a history class. This is a great way for them to learn and practice their writing skills. It is also a great way to get them more engaged in the subject.

#8: Teach Vocabulary

In any history class, you are likely to come across lots of new and unfamiliar vocabulary words. It is important to teach your students these new terms and make them understand their meaning. This is a great way to make the lesson more engaging and help your students remember what they have learned. You could have your students come up with their own word definitions based on a topic in your history class. This is a great way for them to learn the new vocabulary words and teach other students what they mean. This can be done in a few different ways. You could have your students use word wheels or make their own word wall. You could also have them make their own flash cards to help them practice saying the new words correctly.

#9: Historical Role Play

If you want to teach your students some of the key figures in history, no matter what time period your students are learning about, you can try a historical role play! You can do this by having your students dress up in costume and act out certain periods or events in history. You can also try having them act out famous figures from history. This is a great way to get your students excited about their lessons and to engage them in an authentic and meaningful way. Role playing is one of the best ways to learn about history. It brings the past to life and immerses students in an experience that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to have. This is a great way to get your students excited about their lessons and engaged in the topics that you’re teaching them. It’s also a great way to show them that history is a lot more fun and interesting than they may think it is.

#10: Go on a Scavenger Hunt!

When you are teaching any subject, it is always a good idea to integrate lots of different skills. This way your students will be working on multiple things at once and won’t get bored. You can use a Scavenger Hunt to help your students learn more about a certain historical topic. You can either find some examples online or create your own. You can even create a Scavenger Hunt that is related to a certain skill that you are hoping to teach in your history class. For example, when teaching about the causes of the First World War, your students could be given items that need to be collected that help to explain this. You can use this hunt as a great way to engage your students and for them to practice critical thinking skills. A Scavenger Hunt can be played with a whole class of students or with smaller groups. This way you can make it easier for more students to get involved.

BONUS! Honorable Mentions:

As you can see, there's a whole slew of activities and this is by no means an all inclusive list. Hopefully this article has helped spark some ideas and provided you with a fun way or two to give a try in your own classroom! It really doesn't matter if your teaching students about historical artifacts, a specific unit of study such as the American Revolution or the Civil Rights Movement, or if its the first day of school, you're in the midst of Black History Month, or it's the last day of school, activities of any kind or sort are a GREAT opportunity to foster and promote individual students learning and comprehension of important subject matter!

World History Activities

World history is so important.  It expands our perspective of other cultures and gives us a greater understanding of how other people live.

While non-fiction books are indispensable tools to have on hand, taking a break from the textbooks and discovering history with a more hands-on approach will enrich your study of world history and the people who have shaped it.

The Value of a Library Card

Our weekly trip to the library was the main source of supplemental material used for our homeschool.  We learned how to find just about everything about the historical events we were studying and the countries they were set in.

From oversized picture books to music CDs, movies, and maps, we immersed ourselves in the sounds, sights, and cultures of the places we were studying. Even with minimal prep and planning, you can expose your kids to the languages, food, dress, art, and practices of a culture.

For instance, music CDs playing during chore time, movies enjoyed on rainy days, and a stack of books available during quiet time can give your kids many little moments to gaze into this big world of people and places.

fun history assignments

Cultural Events

If you live near a cultural center or urban area that hosts cultural events, those are great opportunities to contextualize history lessons.

Moving eyes off of pages and screens onto real people will help your children connect what they are learning about history to people who have experienced it. If that isn’t an option, it may be time to create something yourself.

One of my favorite world history activities was an annual International Dinner we participated in with our local homeschool support group. Each family would select a country to represent and choose ways to demonstrate the culture. After we shared a wonderfully eclectic meal, each family would do a short presentation on their country.

If you have the space for it, a multi-tiered wall timeline can be an easy way to display historical events from around the world. There are many free, printable timeline figures available on the internet and lots of inexpensive ways to display them.

Your timeline can show that things were taking place in the world at the same time. One way to do this is to display timeline figures on the wall with string. You can use different colors of string for each continent or country you are studying. Hang the strings horizontally on the wall and stack them parallel to one another.

Organize your timeline events by the country they took place in, and hang them on the corresponding string in time order.

fun history assignments

Making Memories

History lessons tend to focus on major events, and it’s sometimes difficult to understand the people who shaped and experienced those events. Because of that, we often feel disconnected from the people and simply focus on memorizing dates and themes.

It is important to choose a history curriculum that tells the stories of the world in an engaging way. Dave Raymond’s history series made history come alive for me and my kids. It tied the stories of the past directly to the greater story that God is telling throughout history. We thoroughly enjoyed using the video curriculum and supplementing with fun, memorable history activities!

Modernity – World History Curriculum

History is best understood through the dual lenses of dramatic story and godly wisdom. Dave Raymond teaches history by applying a Christian worldview to characters, events, theology, literature, art, and religious beliefs of a culture. In Modernity, the follow-up course to American History, Dave Raymond explores world history from 1500 to the present.

And most important, do not just focus on oppression: Focus on the joy too!

Since 1928, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History has provided a theme for Black History Month. In 2023, the theme is Black Resistance . As you review some of our favorite Black History Month activities for the classroom, keep that very important theme in mind.

Why Should You Use American History Activities?

As you know, there is so much to study and learn about American history. While it’s easier to give teens a textbook and have them just read about history, that will most likely make them hate the subject.

Without hands-on activities like these, kids won’t fully understand that the history of the United States is rich and interesting. They’ll assume it’s dry and boring and dread the subject.

But when you bring it alive with fun projects, games, living books, and more, they are engaged and open to learning. This is how kids learn best.

So now’s the time to make history enjoyable by using awesome tools like these in your homeschool.

Colonial America Games and Activities

In the late 1600s, men and women came to a new land looking for freedom and adventure, wanting to build a new union. The American Indians were well established on this land with a successful society of their own. They both make up the story of Colonial America.

As part of your study on the 13 Colonies, take some time to complete a few of these fun activities with your tweens to help them understand what life was like for those early settlers.

When you’re studying early American history, play these fun, Colonial games for children popular in those days with your tweens as part of your lessons.

When you’re making your history lesson plans, take the time to go exploring the 13 Colonies with books and videos .

Discover more about Colonial America with this 13 Colonies notebooking unit . It includes interesting study questions and fun activities for tweens.

Teach tweens how much help the American Indians gave the settlers by cooking some Native American corn recipes as part of your Colonial history lessons.

Your tween can use these myths and facts about the first Thanksgiving as part of a presentation as part of a history lesson.

American Revolution Hands-on Activities

Are you a loyalist or a patriot? That was the question of the time during the events leading up to and during the American Revolution. It eventually led to the birth of our country, but it wasn’t easy getting to an autonomous union.

Help teens understand the issues facing the colonists with these hands-on projects.

My tween had a lot of fun with these two American Revolution hands-on activities . She loved using her American Girl dolls as part of school, so she especially enjoyed creating the historical silhouette.

One of our absolute favorite activity was this American Revolution artifact project . Abigail made a teapot that was representative of those used in the 1700s.

Pioneer Activities

Head west was the rallying cry of many after we became a nation. The colonies were getting crowded and people were looking for something more. They wanted to explore. So they packed up their wagons and headed west.

It’s easy to for teens to get a glimpse of what life was like for the American pioneers when you use these fun hands-on activities as part of your pioneer lesson plans.

When you’re learning about the American pioneers, spend some time in the kitchen making these pioneer recipes . Teens love food, so they’ll appreciate this unique way to study history.

These pioneer crafts were once functional tools used by the pioneers. Tweens can make them as part of their history studies to get a better understanding of the life of the pioneers.

In your homeschool, when you learn about the pioneers, this American Pioneer notebooking unit should be a part of your middle school lesson plan. It will make planning easy because kids can use it to direct their learning. Plus, there’s some fun activities included.

Use these pioneer life activities with your middle schoolers to give them an idea what daily life was like for the early settlers. Things like drawing a life-sized log cabin, making a quilt, and cooking some recipes will make tweens feel like they went back in time.

Show tweens how difficult the journey was for the American pioneers by studying their mode of transportation – the covered wagon. There are 6 covered wagon activities to choose from.

Here are some American pioneer books and resources you can use in your homeschool when you’re studying this part of United States history.

As you study the American Pioneers, use these Pioneer hands-on activities to engage your tweens. They can cook an authentic pioneer meal, make a covered wagon, play some games, and more.

California Gold Rush Activities

The discovery of gold is what led so many individuals to California. They heard about people striking it rich and wanted it for themselves. But it wasn’t as easy to find and mine gold as they thought, so many left just as poor as when they arrived.

These books and activities will help tweens understand what drove so many to pick up and leave their families just for a chance at fortune.

When your tweens begin studying about the discovery of gold in the United States, this California Gold Rush activity should be a part of your lesson plan. The notebooking and unit study will help you plan your lessons and is a great way for tweens to keep track of everything they’re learning.

Use these gold rush books as a part of your study on the California Gold Rush and wild west. Living books like these make it easy to engage older kids in history.

Civil War Activities

The Civil War pitted friends against friends and brother against brother. It divided our nation. It was a costly war that both sides were willing to die for.

These activities will help your tweens gain a deeper understanding of this dark period of our nation’s history.

These Civil War hands-on activities are a wonderful addition to your lesson plans.

The activities below all cover a variety of time periods, so you can easily add them to your history lesson plans whenever you need something interactive for your teen.

These American history board games make the subject fun for tweens. They’re a wonderful way to help them memorize all the dates and facts that are a part of history class. I try to add them to my lesson plans as often as possible.

When you’re studying history in your homeschool, let your tween make an early American quilt . It’s actually quite easy to do and will give her a chance to work on some life skills. You can see the doll-sized ones that my girls made during our history lessons.

Teach your older kids about the contributions American women have made over the years with fun, interactive resources.

A fun way to add science to your history lessons is to study Ben Franklin’s inventions . There are a bunch that kids can easily create to learn more about his important contributions to our world.

Make sure to add some lessons about the American Presidents to your middle school history plans. These resources and activities will make it a breeze for you to teach your tweens about the highest office in our country and the men who have held it over the years.

If you’re struggling to get your tweens to remember their Liberty Bell facts , use this helpful Liberty Bell scavenger hunt. It’s a great addition to your early United States history lessons.

Spend some time during your history lessons teaching flag etiquette to your kids. It’s important that they know all they can about this vital symbol of our country.

Collage of 3 images of American history activities. Board game, game of graces, Mayflower drawing

The Battle of the Alamo was an important event in our history and one that tweens should study in United States history. These resources and activities will help make it interesting for older kids.

Add some early American history videos to your lesson plans. Instead of just reading about history, tweens can watch it unfold.

Wondering how to make American history interesting for kids ? Here are some activities that are sure to engage your tweens and make history enjoyable for them.

If your tween loves American Girl and Minecraft, she’ll definitely want to take this American Girl Minecraft class . It’s a wonderful addition to your homeschool history lessons.

Don’t struggle to find ideas for American history lessons and activities . This massive list is full of things you can do to make history interactive and fun for your tween.

As you can see, it’s quite simple to make history fun and interactive for middle schoolers. Tweens can do many of these projects and activities independently, so you won’t get overwhelmed adding them to your lesson plans.

Engaging older kids and giving them a glimpse various time periods and the people who lived during them is truly the best way to make history exciting for them. There’s no way your teens will claim that history is boring when their lessons are full of fun hands-on activities.

What American history activity is your tween going to try first?

10 Inspiring Black History Month Activities for Students

Smiling teacher leading an engaging class of students on black history.

7 Black History Month topic ideas

Guidelines for teaching during black history month, 10 black history month activities for your students.

February is Black History Month : the celebration of African American history, contributions, and achievements that’s recognized annually across the United States and Canada. 

For teachers, it’s a great opportunity to teach with intention, honoring the tradition and showing students its importance, along with the importance of Black history and culture. 

And this year, it's more important than ever to uphold this tradition and celebrate Black history — no matter where your students are learning.

Use these 10 activity ideas to teach Black history all month and keep your students engaged, whether they're in-class or online!

Typically, teachers tend to stick with the same few topics during Black History Month: civil rights, historical Black leaders or celebrities, and important milestones.

While these are still great topics to explore, there are also plenty of other important concepts you should consider introducing to your students this year, such as: 

For Black History Month 2022, this year's theme is Black Health and Wellness. People are encouraged to explore how North American healthcare has underserved the black community and recognize the contributions to medicine and healthcare by black people.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Firsties♥️Ms. Salamak (@fur_babies_and_firsties)

When teaching Black history, remember to: 

P.S. If you want to help parents talk about Black history and racial issues with their kids at home, use these 8 tips for parents as a helpful resource to start with — including additional resources for anyone who wants to learn more.

Use these activities throughout the month (and the rest of the year) to keep Black history at the forefront of your lessons and encourage your students to keep learning more.

1. Quote or fact of the day

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.

Maya Angelou

Every morning, greet your students with a new quote or fact that’s relevant to Black history. 

Say them aloud during your lesson, add them to your bulletin board or send them in an online message (or all of the above, if you’re feeling ambitious). After this, you can open a discussion with your class about the relevance of each quote or fact.

Your students will love looking forward to what each day brings!

Try these: 

2. Person of the day or week 

Take time to talk about Black influencers and their accomplishments. Highlight a different person every day or week and center your lessons around them!

Explore categories like:

Tip: Try to look beyond typical historical figures and popular celebrities. There are plenty of Black contributors students may not have even heard of yet — use this chance to introduce them! 

3. Black history trivia & games

Bring some fun (and maybe a little competition) into your lessons this month! Find trivia and games that focus on Black history, or repurpose other classroom games to incorporate Black History Month questions and answers.

Example of an online quiz that reads: Who was the only Black woman to serve as a U.S. senator?

4. Worksheet activities

Teach students about Black history while they work on fun activities at their own pace. Send worksheets to students online or print them out for independent classroom learning.

A coloring page that says "Black History Month" in block letters.

5. Virtual events

Classroom learning is great, but there’s so much students can learn from their own experiences! 

This year especially, there are plenty of online activities and events celebrating Black History Month. So why not choose a youth-appropriate one your class can participate in?

6. Timeline activity

Provide more context on important events in Black history with a bit of chronology.

Have students put together their own timelines, whether individually or in groups, that focus on specific historical events or people. They’ll have fun putting all the events together and learn lots along the way!

7. Study (and create) art

Art in the Black community carries so much historical and cultural significance that can inspire some great, illuminative lessons.

Examples of Black History Month art projects for kids.

Assign one of these activities from Creative Child , or get students to:

8. Use relevant media

There’s so much good media out there to help you teach Black history — use it to your advantage!

Read books or watch videos with your class, then discuss the themes and lessons of each piece of media. After this, you can assign work based on them.

Try these books:

9. Host thought activities

Strengthen collaboration skills with various thought activities during February. These will get students thinking and help them learn new ideas and perspectives from each other. 

Start by posing a relevant question to your class, like: 

Encourage plenty of participation, then discuss everyone’s answers together! 

10. Assign a  class project

Give your class a larger assignment they can work on for the entire month, like a collaborative media project or group presentation — like this one from The Core Coaches on Teachers Pay Teachers .

Example of a class project including assignments for

These bigger projects let students build on what they’re learning and work together towards something they can be proud of!
