Fifth graders at Merrimac Elementary School are learning about influential Black Americans as part of the district’s celebration of Black History Month.

In a recent project, students first chose a Black American to research. The fifth graders then created timelines, illustrating their major life events and contributions. The project helped students hone their research skills, organize information in chronological order and explore individuals who have had positive impacts on American history.
