This interactive lapbook is a great way for your students to organize information about the Great Migration and the Harlem Renaissance. This lapbook can be used with your own textbook, reading guides, or choice of websites. However, within this resource you will find a lesson plan with links to websites that I specifically use when teaching this content. A page of QR Code links that can be accessed using a QR reader (such as an app on a phone or tablet) is provided, but you can use this lapbook as a WebQuest as well. By recording key information in a lapbook style booklet, your students can refer back to their notes easily. This also serves as a wonderful study guide tool.

This resource includes:

- Lesson Plan

- Website links with pertinent information

- QR Code sheet with website links

- 3 page interactive lapbook

- Interactive lapbook pieces

- Recording Sheet (students can add additional musings, data, or information relevant to the topics)

Each page has an over-arching question with relevant topics:

1. What was life like in the South for African Americans?

- Jim Crow Laws

- Ku Klux Klan

- The Great Migration

2. What was Harlem?
