This fantastic Civil Rights Movement lesson plan is inspired by the "Freedom Riders". Included are 7 one page readings on major events of the Civil Rights Movement (Brown Vs. The Board of Ed., The Little Rock 9, The Montgomery Bus Boycott, etc) that students read as they travel around the room.
As your students stop and read about each event, they complete a graphic organizer and map each event. This is a great activity to get students moving around the room. It can also be completed in groups, or used for student presentations. A completed example is included as well as several additional ideas on how to present the lesson.
This download includes both printable and Google Drive versions

The editable Google version features links to online resources about each event in the Civil Rights Movement along with a digital postcard that they create at the end.
This product can also be downloaded as part of the larger Civil Rights Movement Resource Bundle
which includes many additional resources for your Civil Rights Movement unit!
