Here are 3 Black History Month, assembly ideas for your elementary school that are fun and easy to do!
1) Rap Song
Have students perform a rap song like the one below about a Black history hero. Students can write their own or perform along to the song here.
2) Skit or Play
Have your students perform a skit or play about notable figures in Black history. Use the skit listed below or have students create their own.
3) Dance or Musical
Have your students create a dance to the song below to dramatize the song lyrics about Rosa Parks, Frederick Douglass, Henry “Box” Brown, and Jackie Robinson. If you and your students are really up for a challenge, you can write a musical that connects each of the songs in the mix below.
You can also check out our plays, musicals, and reading activities for more Black History Month assembly ideas here. Use them to cover Black history all month long in February. Have your students rehearse for a play or musical while practicing reading skills such as synonyms and antonyms, context clues, sequencing events in a story, and identifying root words and affixes.
