PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have you ever wondered what it could have been like for a place to be the primary witness of a significant moment in history (as opposed to the people)?

This activity will ask your students to experience an event in the Civil Rights Movement through the eyes of a place - a wonderful lesson on perspective and point of view (as well as history and geography!)

Included in this packet:

A letter of introduction and explanation

24 "place" cards from the Civil Rights Movement

Explanation Key and 48 quality internet sites (web pages, primary source documents, videos, etc.) to aid in student research

Ideas for Use

Student Response Sheets ("Through the Eyes of Place: I Was a Witness", "Where in the United States?", and "What I Looked Like Then/What I Look Like Now")

Let your students become a location on the map and see things through an entirely different set of eyes!
