********Unit updated January 2013***********
This is a great addition to any unit on Black History. This unit contains great activities that features some well known figures during this era, as well as those who are lesser known. Included is a wonderful mobile that students will create on Martin Luther King, Jr., an activity that begins by learning more about Sarah Breedlove Walker, otherwise known as Madame C.J. Walker, an original story, and it also contains more writing activities on story elements. The books that were used in this packet include "Martin's Big Words", "A Taste of Colored Water", and "The Skin You Live In".
