I created these fill in the blank notes for my fifth grade classroom. They are perfect for filling in as your class learns about each event/person OR as a review/study guide for the end of your Civil Rights unit! Students can keep these in their binders/notebooks and take them home to prepare for your end of unit assessment.
The specific standard addressed in these notes is:
SS5H6 Describe the importance of key people, events, and developments between 1950-1975.
a. Analyze the effects of Jim Crow laws and practices.
b. Explain the key events and people of the Civil Rights movement: Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Montgomery Bus Boycott, the March on Washington, Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act, and civil rights activities of Thurgood Marshall, Lyndon B. Johnson, Cesar Chavez, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
c. Describe the impact on American society of the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
d. Discuss the significance of the technologies of television and space exploration.
Each topic has several sentences with blanks. I have included small black and white clipart to help with memory where applicable.
These are ideal if you don't want your students to have to copy notes word for word, OR if you want to provide an accommodation for your ESOL/SPED students!
There are 2 pages of notes, which you could print front/back or 2 pages per sheet. An answer key is included on the last 2 pages!
