Learning About Amelia Boynton Robinson

Learning About Amelia Boynton Robinson

Children are introduced to Amelia Boynton Robinson, a civil rights activist who got her start at a young age accompanying her mother as she registered African Americans to vote. As an adult, Robinson organized marches and protests, including the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery that helped result in the Voting Rights Act of 1965. After reading a passage about Robinson's life and legacy, students answer a series of questions designed to help them reflect on what they have learned. Designed for a second and third grade literacy curriculum, this inspiring worksheet supports children as they practice connecting key ideas and events and refine their nonfiction comprehension skills.  It is also a nice accompaniment to Women's History Month and Black History Month.
