This Children's Pride lesson plan also includes:
First graders learn about the power of protest. They view images from various protests, then make placards to demonstrate what is important to them. They begin by brainstorming ideas about making the world a better place, then they expand on their favorite ideas through drawing. When they've created their socially minded placards, they pick a public place to hold a demonstration. They march while displaying their personal feeling and beliefs. A great lesson that gets kids motivated to make social changes.
