Students learn about some of the important people during the Civil Rights Movement by first going on a scavenger hunt. Scatter the 25 statements around your room and have students use QR Code Readers to find out Who Am I? Students will then fill out a handout with the answers, complete a graphic organizer, and then organize the people into 5 flap books that can be added to their notebooks.

No QR Code Readers in your classroom? No problem! A non-QR code version is included as well as answer keys for the handout and graphic organizer.
