This updated product includes reading comprehension passages and critical thinking questions on Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Selma and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Black Lives Matter.
Morning and afternoon large group “messages” for students to complete and for you or the sub teacher to introduce the topic; and assess understanding at the end of the day. Each message should take from 30 to 45 minutes of class time.
Fiction and Non-Fiction Reader Response papers for students to complete during independent reading time.
In addition to reading comprehension passages, students will explore individual differences and similarities - regardless of skin color - within their own classroom.
They will put together a timeline of major Civil Rights Events.
The math activity will be a “Civil Rights” board game. They will advance through the board walk by computing multiplication, division (with remainders), and addition of fractions (unlike denominators)(or substitute your own computations to fit the needs of your class) as they respond to questions related to the Civil Rights Movement.
They will put new vocabulary words in alphabetical order; find dictionary definitions and generate own sentences; play vocabulary games to extend comprehension.
As always, these sub lesson plans include an activities "grid" to briefly explain each activity,suggested variations, supplies needed, and Common Core Standards applied;
