Teaching kids about the civil rights movement can be a tough subject. It’s difficult for kids to begin to learn about prejudice and inequality in our government, which is supposed to make things fair for all. Story books about civil rights are a great way to introduce to kids to this troublesome time in our history. Books like ‘Who was Martin Luther King Jr.?’ and engaging stories such as ‘The Other Side’ or ‘Henry’s Freedom Box’ can open our kids eyes to the importance of standing up for what is right and how even one person can make changes that can have a big impact.
Learn social studies through great kids books, read and discuss this important topic along with your homeschool social studies activities, around the table as a family or in your classroom.
