This unit can be taught out of order or just one book at a time. If you don’t have the book, most of them can be found on YouTube. Some of the activities could be replaced by a favorite social justice book of your choice, too!

You will need to prep (print, cut out, and possibly laminate) the question cards and partner match up cards ahead of the lesson.
