Booker T. Washington. Kindergarten-Third Grade Activity. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
Wahe, Amy
This illustrated activity for primary students features the life and accomplishments of Booker T. Washington. This educator began his life as a plantation slave and later founded Tuskegee Institute, one of the first colleges that African Americans could attend. The activity tells how Booker T. Washington and his students built the Tuskegee Institute. It also recounts the story of Washington's family's life. After they were freed from slavery they walked from the plantation to West Virginia, because they were too poor to buy train tickets. Washington worked very hard to make money for his family and to educate himself to become a teacher. This activity asks students to write a story about Booker T. Washington and to draw a picture of him. The teachers notes section recommends a grade level/unit; addresses California state language arts standards and history/social sciences standards; notes materials needed; provides terms to introduce to students; and lists Internet resources.
