Product Description
Students will be hooked on history by first analyzing the first day cover, an envelope with commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork. After collecting the facts, the lesson provides a series of guiding questions for the teacher to use. Students will then read an excerpt from the Letter from the Birmingham Jail, which explains the role of non violent direct action in the civil rights movement. Students will discuss the difference between just and unjust laws.
Print off the primary source documents and create a bulletin board display for Black History month. Envelopes may be small, but contain a huge message.
