Black History Month Project: African American History Collaborative “Quilt”



Black history month project. This project connects the individual with the group using hexagons that will tessellate to create a large “quilt” collaboration poster featuring 40 influential African Americans and their biographies. It is the perfect whole-class activity to do during Black History Month or any time of the year!

Students will each work on 3 individual hexagons. One hexagon has a portrait of an influential African American, the other has this person’s name written in a “stitch” font (to keep with the quilt theme), and the third piece will be a biography of this person. Once each student completes and attaches their 3 hexagons, the attached pieces will connect with the pieces from the rest of the class to make the overall “quilt” poster design.


Easy for Teachers & Fun for Kids!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is extremely engaging and exciting for students during BHM. It gave students creative liberties while learning. One of my favorite things from TPT.

This is one of my best purchases! Students loved it and it looks GORGEOUS in my room! I think the students learned a lot, it was a great variety of subjects and I really appreciated that there were a variety of different response hexagons which allowed me to personalize it to my students’ needs.
