3) Make a cut-out doll of your person. Make a visual of your celebrity to go with your report.

Why Am I Studying Black History?
History is an important subject area. It is the “story” of all events that have occurred in the past – or at least the ones we know about. In studying history, we study people all over the world. In completing this project (and the three to follow), you are learning about Black History. It is part of all our histories as Canadians and as world citizens.
