Greensboro Sit-In

Greensboro Sit-In

Children learn about the Sit-In movement in the United States, whereby Americans staged nonviolent sit-ins to protest businesses' racist segregationist policies. Students read a passage about the Greensboro Sit-In, one of the peaceful resistance protests that took place around the U.S. South in the early 1960s. They then answer questions to reflect on what they have learned. Designed for a fourth grade social studies curriculum, this worksheet lends well to a unit on U.S. history and passive resistance.
