The activities focus on Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Jesse Owens, Muhammed Ali, Barack Obama, Jackie Robinson and Frederick Douglass.

32 Lessons, or 32 hours of activities, with NO PREP needed!

Firstly, there are eight reading comprehension activities, or informational texts, about:
Martin Luther King
Nelson Mandela
Jackie Robinson
Barack Obama
Frederick Douglass
Ruby Bridges
Rosa Parks
Muhammed Ali

These activities require NO PREP and have a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers. Answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of each document.

Finally, there are six biography writing units about Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Jesse Owens, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi. The units have been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
