Famous African Americans and Inventions

    We learned about Isaac Johnson who invented the bicycle. We watched a short video on bicycle safety and then charted bicycle safety rules. Then students drew themselves riding a bicycle.

    We learned about Garrett Morgan who invented the traffic light. We illustrated a traffic light, discussed what the colors mean, and how it helps keep us safe. Then the students pretended  to drive cars around our classroom. I called out the colors and the students drove appropriately.

    We read Salt in His Shoes the story of Michael Jordan. Then we wrote and illustrated who we like to play basketball with or who we would want to play basketball with.
