Rosa Parks Changed the Rules

Students listen to a story about Rosa Parks and examine the bus seating rules of the 1950s. In this civil rights movement instructional activity, the teacher reads students a book about Rosa Parks, then students complete a worksheet with a diagram of the bus seating arrangements in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955. Students use classroom materials to role play the scene on the bus when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat.
