The weekly theme for January 20, 2020 is “American Heroes”.

In this unit, the children will meet some heroes, role models, and courageous individuals. The children will look closely at the lives of African American inventors, scientists, writers, artists, and athletes to see how they have influenced the world. The children will learn about the heroic accomplishments of African American leaders in their fields and how their choices shaped history. Hands-on activities will give students the opportunity to explore, create and experiment using their own ideas, providing first-hand experiences related to those of the heroes they are studying.
