Rosa Parks Changed the Rules

Learners listen to a story about Rosa Parks and examine the bus seating rules of the 1950s. For this civil rights movement lesson, the teacher reads students a book about Rosa Parks, then learners 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.
