This product contains activities highlighting five women important to the Civil Rights Movement. For each woman there is a one page informational sheet, a page of comprehension questions, an interactive timeline, and a writing response sheet for students to synthesize information from the text and timeline. Four mini posters for your focus wall are also included.

The text passages answer the questions “Why was she important?” and “How can I be like her?” to help students connect personally to each woman.
These activities are a great way to celebrate Black History Month. Students can do them in small groups, guided reading, or independent work. Depending on your students’ reading levels, these would be appropriate for first, second, or third grade.
