Fourth graders report on prominent Black Americans

computer screen

Fourth grade remote learners at Homer Brink created digital reports after reading biographies about prominent Black Americans. Their lesson was part of their celebration of Black History Month.

The students chose a book and then created Google slides as a way to share information they learned with their classmates. The students teamed up in digital breakout rooms in Zoom and by sharing their screens, they were able to see and listen to each other’s reports.

Each presentation included an introduction slide, an outline of the person’s importance, five facts, and photos.

As one person shared their report, students in the group took notes and then in a full class meeting, shared out what they learned.

The students learned about, and reported on scientists, athletes, musicians and more including Danielle Lee, Mae Jemison and Stevie Wonder.

To wrap up their lesson, the students wrote about what they took away as inspiration for their own lives.
