Nelson Mandela / Black History / Art Portraits

Nelson Mandela / Black History / Art Portraits

A massive bank of resources based around Nelson Mandela and Black History. Features an incredibly effective lesson leading onto an assembly to show how soul destroying racism really can be with links to Nelson Mandela. Is VERY powerful if done properly. Right to education, poverty, quotes and web-links also included. I have also included lots of additional resources on Nelson Mandela and a Teachers TV video and the video file and notebook file I used to try and illustrate drawing portraits. Powerpoints, worksheets, videos, plans etc. enjoy!
