Historical Heroes: Maya Angelou
Children get to know author, activist, and poet Maya Angelou in this historical heroes worksheet. Students learn how Angelou joined the civil rights movement, wrote seven autobiographies, and was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom. They then answer a series of who, what, where, why, and how comprehension questions designed to help them reflect on what they learned. Designed for a year three social studies curriculum, Historical Heroes: Maya Angelou is a great way to introduce children to this celebrated American writer.
