Activity Ideas for Black History Month Fun Fact Cards

These cards are used multiple ways by teachers and parents including:

  • Quick Fun Fact – Read the fact card each day and store them in a small basket where the students can look at them again and again. Or keep the set on a ring.
  • Fact of the Day Bulletin Board – Read a fact each day and display the cards on a special bulletin board or foam board.
  • Hallway Display – One teacher displayed them on the hallway chalkboard outside her door so many students and adults could read them.
  • Calendar Pocket Chart – Put a fact behind each number on the calendar and have a different student take it out each day. You can then display on bulletin board.

  • Memory Game – Create two sets and use for a Memory Game.

Booker T. Washington was featured on a postage stamp on Black History Month Fun Fact CardThe cards are 3×3 and there are 6 on a page. I made them small so they easily slide behind your date cards on the calendar pocket chart. They are also a good size for small hands if using them for a game. I also made them smaller to find the balance between making them colorful, but not taking too much ink when you print them.

The cards are unnumbered so they can be used in any month and in any sequence. You can use all the cards in the set or only a portion. This provides maximum flexibility for the teacher’s schedule. Use one set all month or use parts of two sets depending on your needs.

Also included is a hyperlinked list of the relevant websites where the facts were located.

One teacher shared:

“My kids are addicted to reading these facts cards every morning. If I forget to read one, they are sooo quick to remind me. And the parents are learning too! During conferences, I had many parents tell me how much they had learned from their children when we read the apple and pumpkin cards. Thanks!”

    These are very well done, thorough and professional looking. I incorporated them into an interactive door display. The information in the biographies is easy to read and understand with the picture adding a face to the accomplishment.
