What I learned about Black History from Day Nursery preschoolers

 In In Our Classrooms

As I review my pictures on this last day of February, I realized how much Day Nursery students have taught me this month about black history.  Here are a few things I learned from the children and teachers of the Day Nursery Federal Center.

The three-year olds at the Day Nursery Federal Center taught me about George Washington Carver how his research helped poor farmers find alternate crops like peanuts to grow to improve their quality of life. I learned that Garrett A. Morgan invented the traffic light while the children learned to match up the colors of red, yellow and green. And we all learned about Benjamin Banneker who goes down in black history as a noted astronomer and mathematician who once carved a clock out of wood.
