Civil Rights Sit-Ins

Civil Rights Sit-Ins

The Sit-In movement in the United States was a series of nonviolent protests whereby people resisted segregationist policies in businesses around the American South. In this worksheet, students learn how the Sit-In movement began, and the impact it had on both the region and the country. Children review new vocabulary learned in the passage, then follow prompts that invite them to reflect on the meaning of the Sit-In movement. Designed for a fourth and fifth grade social studies curriculum, this worksheet invites children to consider the impact of small actions on a larger movement.
