2015 Lesson Activities

We are proud to provide samples of activities and projects for educators that will involve, entertain, and inform students of the contributions of these South Carolinian African Americans. While by no means comprehensive, these resources will hopefully assist you in your critically important role for the future of our state: teaching our children.

In order to help you find what you are looking for more quickly, we’ve sorted the lessons by honoree/month and also by subject. Click on the names or subjects below to find lesson plans sorted by that category.
