I have created a civil rights K-W-L chart that can help students activate prior knowledge, assess what they want to learn, and evaluate their learning at the end of your civil war unit.
I plan to use this chart at the beginning of my novel unit for "The Watsons Go To Birmingham". This could also be used for any social studies unit on the civil rights. I have added clip art to make it appealing to the students as well.
Thank you for considering my products. You may also want to check out my unit plan bundle on "The Watsons Go To Birmingham". This is included in that bundle in addition to 3 weeks of lesson plans and everything you would need to teach the novel! THANKS!
