Beginning of Black History Month-Garrett Morgan

Today marked the beginning of our Black History Month Unit!  Every couple of days we will learn about someone who has made an impact on the way we live. Today we learned all about Garrett Morgan, an inventor whose most famous invention was the traffic light. In honor of Mr. Morgan we made our own traffic lights! We talked about what it meant to be an inventor, what colors are in a modern traffic lights, which order they appear in, and placement prepositions (above, below, under), all while making our traffic lights. 

We are looking forward to what is to come this month! Mrs. B is most looking forward to teaching us about Harriet Tubman as our campus is full of such history as a last stop (and tunnel under state lines) of the Underground Railroad.
