Snack: In honor of George Washington
Carver, enjoy a double dose of peanuts, the focus of his amazing scientific
career. Have a handful of whole peanuts and crack the shells to get the nuts
out . . . then have a peanut butter sandwich with jelly, honey or whatever you
like, remembering that Dr. Carver was the first person to make peanut butter!
Wash down all that sticky peanutty goodness with a tall glass of milk.

One of the best ways to learn about history
is to study biography. That's the life story of someone. There are important
lessons to be learned, and role models you should know about. Try to make it
your habit to read one biography every month. By the end of your schooling, you
should know about a LOT of interesting people, and how they achieved success.
There are a lot of African-Americans
whose biographies are inspiring and exciting. It would make a great Black
History Month project to read up on each of these heroes and write a paragraph
about each one.
Include the year of his or her birth and
death so you can keep each person's life in perspective of what was going on in
American history during that life span.
When you have finished all the
paragraphs, be sure to share them with other students, your family, and
everyone else, because these great people did things for ALL of us!
