Civil Rights Milestones Webquest
Students will gain knowledge about the Civil Rights Movement and its influence on the federal government by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Civil Rights Milestones Webquest uses a great website created by PBS called Eyes on the Prize: America’s Civil Rights Movement 1954-1985.
The webquest contains forty-seven questions that are broken up into fifteen Civil Rights milestones/events. The Civil Rights Milestones Webquest is a great way to explain the active role the Civil Rights Movement had on influencing the Supreme Court. This webquest is great for a unit on Civil Rights, the Supreme Court, or government. Most students will finish this webquest within a class period. An answer sheet is included for the teacher.
