Applying Knowledge of Civil Rights
After lessons about Martin Luther King, Jr. and Susan B. Anthony we discussed the ethical implications of civil rights. Then I then asked them to pretend they were a snowman.
Does a snowman have any rights?
What would you do if you were a snowman to make sure you had equal rights?
I know it sounds silly, but I could really see who was able to apply knowledge of civil rights and who was still struggling with the real meaning of it. The kids wrote about what they would fight for and then made protest posters.
