This is a bundle of three 3rd Grade or 4th Grade close reading activities, or informational text activities, about three key figures of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States - Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks & Ruby Bridges. Perfect for Black History Month.
The informational texts look into the activists' lives, careers and achievements, and conclude with comprehension and grammar questions. They also contain extension activities for fast-finishing students. They are aimed at students between the ages of 7-10.
Each resource is ideal for a homework activity, a reading group activity, guided reading, exam/test preparation etc.
Each activity requires NO PREP; they have a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers.
Answers, for teacher use, are on the final pages of the documents.
