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.
