Are you struggling to find the time to teach the entire Civil Rights Movement? This Civil Rights Movement Learning Centers is one of my FAVORITE student-centered activities and will teach most of the unit in less than a week!

"This is one of the best products I've ever purchased on TeachersPayTeachers. Very usable. The kids loved it and I can't wait to use it again next year. THANK YOU!"

Students rotate between six different Learning Centers where, with their group, they read information about a specific topic related to Civil Rights Movement and complete a corresponding “Data Sheet”. If students finish early they complete a fun and educational activity. To assess their knowledge a quiz is included. Both Print & Digital (Google drive) versions included! Perfect for Distance Learning.
