These Civil Rights stories were created to be engaging for the students and yet they are “kid friendly”. I found as a teacher it was difficult to teach civil rights in the upper elementary grades because the stories were often not age appropriate for my students and so I wanted to have stories that were appropriate. The artwork of the characters was also designed to fit upper elementary, not too grown-up but not too childish.
This product includes 7 passages, the topics include:
• Reasons and Causes of the Civil Rights Movement
• The Young People of the Civil Rights Movement
• The Bus Boycott (Rosa Parks)
• Greensboro College Students (Peaceful Protesting)
• Birmingham (1963)
• March on Washington
• Memphis Tennessee (1968)
This story bundle is for teachers that already have their own lesson plans but just need stories. If you are looking for “ higher-order thinking “ lesson plans that have engaging and fun tasks with lots of rigor, you may want to purchase the MLK $8.00 Unit
that has detailed lesson plans which integrate literacy with this time period.
