Beacon Black History Box is a series of educational kits that combines Black history history, literacy and S.T.E.A.M. for children ages 4-9. Each kit includes a picture book about a relatively unknown Black historical figure and 3-4 accompanying S.T.E.A.M. activities that correspond to the figure’s contributions or their field. These educational kits have been developed using the curriculum framework standards for K-5 from 5 different states.
The box is broken into 2 age groups: 4-6 and 7-9. The box for ages 4-6 focuses on number and letter recognition, motor skill development, simple chemical reactions, and the natural world. The accompanying books are at a PreK to 2 grade reading level. The box for ages 7-9 emphasizes the nature of sound and energy, electricity, chemical reactions, and laws of motion. The books range from a 1st grade to 3rd grade reading level.
Certain historical figures also have a box available for children 10-12. This box takes a deeper dive into physics, chemistry, and life sciences and features age appropriate texts.
