Year 6 US History Worksheet
Civil Rights: The Later Years of the Movement
By the end of the 1960s, many of the stated goals of the civil rights movement had been accomplished, yet there was still work to do. In The Civil Rights Movement: The Later Years worksheet, children read about the issues that emerged later in the movement with the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the emergence of thinkers like Malcolm X who advocated for self-defence and self-reliance. They then reflect on what they have read and consider the ideals of nonviolence and how they might apply to an issue taking place today. Designed for a year six social studies and U.S. history curriculum, this worksheet supports students as they learn to make connections between historical and current events.
