Anthony, Thomas Edison, Jackie Robinson, Franklin Roosevelt and Elvis Presley.
An excellent tool for organizing information, these cards contain information about different events in the Civil Rights Movement. Students can work individually or as a group to read their given passages. Once they have finished reading, they list the "who, what, and where" of each passage. This activity is not only a good tool for historical information, but a great way to transition students into writing essays about the information they discover.
