Willie and Friends: Overcomers in the Land Stories by Faith Ringgold

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Students use puppets and plays to examine the role of African Americans throughout history. After being read a story by a puppet, they respond to each one in writing. Individually, they write a story about a place they have wanted to visit along with their feelings. To end the instructional activity, they make their own doll based on a character in a book and share it with the class.
