Product Description
So many students (and adults, for that matter) believe that racial tensions were only prevalent in the South during, following and after the Civil War into the Civil Rights Movement. Many kids do not realize that the North harbored just as much discrimination. This webquest helps students to understand more about Dr. Martin Luther King, beyond the "I Have a Dream" and southern protests.

With a strong focus on firsthand accounts, determining the validity of claims and arguments, perspective, bias and gathering multiple sources to prove or disprove a claim, this webquest chronicles the Chicago Freedom Movement, a civil rights movement that many students have not heard about, that takes place in the north. The webquest includes searching The King Center, online cartography (maps), videos, handwritten letters to Dr. King, news reports, newspaper articles from today and the 1960s, and a video.

Students will learn to question themselves and their beliefs, have a wider world view and learn to think analytically and critically using this webquest.

This can also be done using printed versions of the articles listed in the webquest!

This can definitely be modified and used with gifted 4th graders (I've done it!), but most activities are better suited for middle school students!
