Civil Rights Books for Elementary

Civil Rights Books and Movies for Elementary KidsThis semester we are doing a unit on the Civil Rights Movement.   I came up with a long list of books that we can read with this unit.  Most of them I found at our local library. I thought I would share the list I compiled in case someone else might find it useful:

**Civil Rights Movement Lessons (Free Packet) – In some ways this is the core of what I want the kids to learn from this unit… what are rights? What is the difference between someone’s rights and a privilege? What is it like to be a part of a group? When can it be hard/painful to be left out? Judging people by what they look like. The power of speeches. This is a 13 page packet of discussion questions and lesson ideas on all that and terms like prejudice, bias, racism, etc.
