Black Historical Figures – Biography Graphic Organizers

Research projects in the classroom can be daunting. Assigning individual research topics, fielding two-hundred questions, and managing the progress of each student can be quite the task. We’re all for making lives simpler, especially teachers’ lives. That’s we have developed these historical figures research graphic organizers.

Since there are so many famous black leaders in our history, we’ve created a set of two research organizers to help your students read, organize, and learn information about black leaders in history. Each graphic organizer includes four influential Americans to research and learn about.
