February is a busy Month!

Black History Month (February) is almost here. Make sure you have the materials to help you teach this important topic, from historical figures and the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, to slavery and the Civil War, to racism, discrimination, and the Black Lives Matter movement in America today. 

Celebrate George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and all the rest of our presidents this Presidents'Day (February 15).
