With TeachHUB’s Black History Lesson Ideas Beyond MLK & Civil Rights, students are given the opportunity to explore heritage and culture during Black History Month as well as learn and honor the ethnic heritage of all students.

One of the lesson ideas involves famous firsts in sports and is inspired by the groundbreaking athlete, Jackie Robinson. Older students are directed to research additional minority athletes who paved the way in professional sports. There are also alternative activities and suggestions for younger students.

Another suggested activity involves creating a classroom fair that celebrates every student’s culture. Students are directed to research their families’ home countries and display photos of the country, music, ethnic food and more.
