February is Black History Month. During this month, teachers prepare lesson plans to incorporate Black History, but how do you teach Black History to preschoolers? Children from the ages of 2 to 5 years learn best through play, observation, exploration, discovery, and the use of their 5 senses. 

Teaching children about the historical accomplishments and struggles of African Americans benefits everyone. By connecting children with history, they’ll gain a better understanding of themselves no matter what color they are and they’ll learn to develop compassion for other people.

Whether reading books, listening to music or making soulful meals, there are plenty of fun ways for kids to learn about the African American experience. And remember, your children can enjoy these activities long after February is over.
