This primary source analysis activity for the Civil Rights Movement includes the Founding Statement of the SNCC and an amazing piece by Civil Rights hero Ella Baker. It includes both printable and Google Docs versions
of the activity in this one download!
Ella Baker worked with the NAACP and Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) before helping to found the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). The SNCC played a major role in the Greensboro sit-ins, Freedom Rides, and 1963 March on Washington.
This activity includes an introduction to help students understand the background and the SNCC's Founding Statement on the first page. The next page features Ella Baker's famous "Bigger Than a Hamburger" piece on the goals of the nonviolent protest movement. Finally, a worksheet page features 7 open-ended questions for students to answer based on what they learned from the primary sources.
An answer key for the worksheet is included for your convenience. A link to the editable Google Doc version is on the last page. This is perfect if you have gone paperless or just want to integrate more technology. It can be shared with students through Google Classroom and completed all online!
