Two great activities that would span five lessons on the life of South African civil rights activist and the first black South African president, Nelson Mandela. Perfect for 3rd Grade or 4th Grade. Great for Black History Month, research into Civil Rights or for World History!
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a close reading activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about World History, or for Black History Month.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
