Your students will use reading, research, and writing skills in this fun activity that focuses on Civil Rights. Perfect for celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Students will skim and scan resources you provide, determine important information, then summarize that information. This activity would be perfect for Close Reading as students focus on rereading small pieces of rigorous text. This note-taking research activity could extend into writing or even art. I've used this as a whole group activity and as a literacy center.
