Day Nursery Indiana State Center uses hands-on learning for Black History Month

These pictures are from the Day Nursery State Center’s Black History Museum.  Center Director Michelle Terry reported they had 10 stations that were based on improvements or inventions created by African Americans. Examples include Sarah Boone and the ironing board, John Johnson and the wrench, and Dr. Daniel Hale Williams and the first open heart surgery (represented in our hands-on learning experience by the board game “Operation”). Children visited the center’s fitness room and had a chance to explore the different stations. The concept was to have a station that targeted at least one of the five senses.  In addition to the stations, Michelle sent home chocolate chip cookies because they were also invented by an African American, better known as Famous Amos!
