Pizza box biography and quilt pattern details help teach Black history in Washington School District

Third graders in Washington School District learned about Black history in some creative ways this past month. Teachers used blank pizza boxes to do black biographies with paper-cutout pizzas for drawings and photos, famous facts and info. Students learned about Sojourner Truth to Barack Obama and many in between. Each student’s pizza biography was displayed and presented to the class to learn about many people in Black history. Another third grade class took the same project concept and made a paper quilt to display on a wall. Each student had one character to include a drawing or photo and two or three quilt squares of facts and details. Some interactive learning at its best!
