Mapping Black History Month

It's February and many educators will be exploring Black History in celebration of Black History Month, http://www.africanamericanhistorymonth.gov/.

Perhaps you'd like an alternative to videos and worksheets...have you thought of using maps and stories to get students beyond the text?

I created a lesson plan for mapping students through The Watsons Go to Birmingham.  It contains experiences in math, science, social studies and English language arts.  On my maps portal you can check out map experiences for Plessy v. Ferguson, Their Eyes Were Watching God and more.  Perhaps you're studying Mark Twain and want to look into slavery in that era.

As you celebrate history...use a map!

Thanks Barbaree for your wonderful resources for geography, history, and beyond. It is my hope that the spatial perspective will be increasingly valued in the future. Along these lines creating historical to current neighborhood and county ethnicity and other demographic maps from, say 1940 to present using www.socialexplorer.com is another excellent way to incorporate the spatial perspective.
