Celebrating Black History

At Day Early Learning, we believe each child must be understood within the context of their individual family, community and experiences. We embrace diversity and support learning in a rich environment that nurtures individual talents and addresses the unique backgrounds of each child we educate. In honor of Black History Month, our centers are highlighting contributions by African Americans. From the inventor of ice cream scoop to architects, fashion designers and stylists to guest readers – each classroom and center is celebrating in their very own way. 

Activities we did this month:

  • Tried different types of fruit juices and learned about Madeline M. Turner, the inventor of the fruit press
  • Reading books about Black History Month with Ms. Burton every Friday at Purdue University
  • Marble painting in Black History colors
  • Creating and hunting for stop lights, celebrating Garrett Morgan, the inventor of the traffic signal
  • Painting with super soakers, in honor of the inventor, Lonnie Johnson
  • Engaging in foam sensory activities with ice cream scoops, celebrating inventor Alfred Cralle
  • …and so much more!
