Civil Rights Movement Lesson Plan with New Google Activity

This fantastic Civil Rights Movement lesson plan is inspired by the "Freedom Riders" who took buses South to register voters during the late 1960's.

Included in your activity download are 7 one-page readings on major events of the Civil Rights Movement. The 7 events are:

  • Brown Vs. the Board of Education
  • The Montgomery Bus Boycott
  • The Little Rock 9
  • The March on Washington
  • Massive resistance in public schools
  • The assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. 
  • The killing of civil rights workers in Philadelphia, Mississippi

These readings can be hung around the room for your students to move through as a station activity, or completed in groups. As students stop and read about each event, they complete a graphic organizer and map each event. 

This is a great activity to get students moving around the room or used for student presentations. A completed example is included as well as several additional ideas on how to present the lesson. 

This download includes both printable and Google Drive versions of the activity! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, you can use the provided link to bring this resource into Google Classroom!
