✔What are Civil Rights Activity
There are three main activities:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.
Next, have students read the informational articles and character studies where they will meet Martin Luther King Jr. and learn all about his life. Articles are written in a kid-friendly format with questions and scenes for students to connect and color.
Have students complete the Mystery Flaps and the 6 page Flip-Up Booklet all about Martin Luther King Jr. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover. Students could then decorate the cover of the booklet.
*The organizers included in this activity pack are the same ones that are sold separately in my store.
