Thanks to NYC PS Creators for Sharing Black History Month Lessons!

New York City PS creators have shared some awesome lessons celebrating Black History Month. The VizZle moderators were especially impressed with Dachka B’s lesson Ruby Bridges and Angela S’s Etta James. But we really loved Erin S’s George Crum lesson, as potato chips hold a place near and dear to our hearts… Many thanks to all the authors who shared lessons honoring Black History Month–may the extra bonus good karma points rain upon you!

Here’s the details on theses three lessons (but you can run a search for “Black History” in Share to find lots more):

What people are saying about vizZle

“My students earn computer time as a reward and I used to use Starfall, but now they actually ask to get on VizZle. Got to love it when they want to work instead of play.”
