African-American Explorers and Innovators: An Interdisciplinary Unit

African-American History Month, also called Black History Month, is celebrated every February in the U.S. and Canada to recognize the achievements of African Americans.

In this three-day interdisciplinary unit, "African-American Explorers and Innovators," students will expand their knowledge of lesser-known African Americans in history by examining their engineering contributions. Activities include...

  • researching historical figures and technologies
  • creating an engineering prototype
  • writing a short story or one-act play

The unit incorporates EBSCO's Biography Reference Center, History Reference Center, Literary Reference Center Plus and Science Reference Center.
