Take students to the top of blooms taxonomy with project based learning. Make history come alive and students will learn about the civil rights in a completely different method. Students use events from the Civil Rights movement and create a kids book from the event. The goal is to have students be able to take a complicated issue from the movement and simplify it to make it understandable to elementary students. This project has multiple websites in which students could create an online book. Or let students use their artistic ability to draw and create their own characters. This could be cross-curricular with English and help with story and character creation. You could alter this to meet any historical time period. This project is a must.
