As I mentioned in my Celebrate Black History Month post, I will be utilizing Black History Month to teach my kidlets about the achievements of influential Black Americans throughout our history. I created this set of printable Black History Month matching tiles to use with them. Of course, I used the theme from the Celebrate Black History printable I made. The tiles are of Martin Luther King, Jr., Benjamin Carson, Rosa Parks, Lewis Latimer, Ida B. Wells, Mae Jemison, Crispus Attucks, Shirley Chisholm, Frederick Douglas, Charles Drew, George Washingtong Carver, and Matthew Henson.
Simple click the Free Printable Black History Month Matching Tiles image above, or on the title, to open a pdf in a new window for printing.
The tiles are 3 inches each. I printed mine out and affixed them to 3.5 inch red squares, so that we can play match/memory with them as we learn about them.
You could also print them and have the kidlets glue them to construction paper and then glue them onto tongue depressors for more creative play. When they are busy with these creative play activities, you can tell them who the person is and what they contributed to mankind for the better of us all.
Be sure to print the I Have a Dream, Too journal printable from my Celebrate Martin Luther King Day post. Check out my Celebrate Cultural Heritage post for a list of other cultural heritage observances in the USA.
