Famous African-Americans in History

What You Need:

  • Online resources about African-Americans
  • Pencil
  • A printed copy of this quiz and the answer key (download here)

What You Do:

  1. Encourage your child to peruse some online resources about African-American history.
  2. Challenge them to find the correct answers on the matching quiz and write the corresponding letter in the blank next to each sentence. They should do this without peeking at the answer key and see how many they get right.
  3. If at any time your child isn’t sure of the correct answer, the easiest thing for them to do is use the computer to either conduct a search on a search engine or to refer to a book source.
  4. Once your child is done, let them correct their work and see how well they did. Keep in mind that it's more important for your child to go through the learning process of answering these questions and researching information independently than to obtain a perfect score on the quiz.
  5. Just for fun, ask your child who, out of all the individuals spotlighted in this quiz, is their favorite. Encourage them to find additional online resources so that they can learn a little bit more about the person who's piqued their interest.

Create your own matching quiz tailored to suit your child’s learning needs or appeal to their interests. For example, if your child is a sports fanatic, create a quiz that's focused on famous African-American athletes. Or, if your child is studying the Civil Rights Movement and could use a little extra practice at home, then fashion your quiz accordingly.
