Increase your students background knowledge of important Civil Rights people and events with this research and timeline creation activity. Students can individually research an event and jigsaw what they have learned with the purpose of creating a personal timeline of important events during the Civil Rights Movement.
This activity creates a nice bulletin board or hallway display of the Civil Rights Movement.
This download includes: 26 event cards for student research and a 6 pg timeline to be made into a personal student timeline; directions for the teacher; a 1 pg Civil Rights timeline reference; a handout of Civil Rights related vocabulary for students; and suggested resources including research websites, picturebooks for read alouds, and novels for book club studies.
This activity aims to answer the question "Why was the Civil Rights Movement Necessary?"
If you would like to create a full timeline booklet like this one for your students for additional topics in history, you can download the entire timeline booklet with a coverpage here for $1.50:
