Black History Month

So I’m teaching about black history month in school and have a plethora of packets on individuals that students can color in, dot to dot, decode, etc.

In my amazement, only two kids colored Dr. King  “black” while others made him white.

While working on President’s weekend information and studying about Abe Lincoln, the students colored him black. When I informed them that the only black president was Barrack Obama and that Abe was indeed white, they asked if Obama was on the quarter?

Clearly I have not done my job as teacher.
