On February 1, 1960, four young men from NCAT university sat at the counter in Woolworth's department store and asked for coffee and a doughnut. They were refused service and asked by the management to leave. The photograph that appeared of them in the newspaper the next day quickly became global news. Less than a week later, 1000 people protested at Woolworths and other local stores and the movement rapidly spread. Six months on, Woolworths integrated its counter service.

What's included:
•Step-by-step directions with photographs
•Templates with directions for running directly onto construction paper
•A choice of lunch counter items with and without titles, so that you can have your students research different aspects of the movement, sequence events or write about implications and changes perceived and real.
In addition to the construction paper needed for each of the counter foods, each student will need a piece of 19"x12" construction paper.
