It's Just For Fun Friday! On JFFF, we review items and activities that you can do with your kids in order to increase their cultural competence and diversity awareness.
I love this week's item because it's perfect for a kid like me - or at least the kid I was. Nerdy, seriously nerdy. Do you remember these Brain Quests? They were stacks of questions. On the first page was a question and then the second page would tell you the answer. For the most part, these are designated by age, but this item is a little different from the others. It's all about a particular topic and that topic is Black History. An entire deck, front and back, of questions about Black History. I thought that was really cool because no matter how much you've learned about Black History, you're bound to learn something new. Your kids too!
So use this deck when you guys are traveling, in a restaurant, basically anywhere where there is a lot of sitting and kids get bored easily. It'll keep them quiet (well, hopefully, I make no guarantees) and will get their brains moving as well.
After you watch the video, print out the page below for a quick reference guide on this activity and suggestions for ways to use it. There's also a link below to buy this very cool Brain Quest.
Will you use this deck with your kids? With them or on their own? What is the coolest thing that you or your kids learned about Black History? Leave a comment below.
Most of all enjoy the video. And don't forget to HAVE FUN!
Check back next week for another Just For Fun Friday!
