Civil Rights Movement

I wanted to share a new, cool online thing we used for this unit we studied. I showed you the online timeline for WWII; for the Civil Rights Movement, we used something called a Museum Box.

You can have as many “shelves” and “drawers” as you like. You can add text, images, videos, websites, power points and more to your cubes. It’s easy to use once you learn to save and “add to cube” each thing you do. Here is a screenshot sample from our family. Each of those pictures is the front of a cube. You click on the cubes to spin them around and see all the different sides.

We watched lots of YouTube videos. I like being able to show my kids videos of the real people. Here are a few links for you:

I Have a Dream short, long 17 min.

James Farmer

Brown vs. the Board of Ed.

Another nice resource I found is the children’s story, “White Socks Only“. You have to find the story on the list. Since I don’t have access to a library, a find like this is exciting.

And, I made up little matching games for names and dates.

I do hope one day I can make my own games. I’m trying to learn javascript at the moment. My son and I are doing it together so he keeps me going.

In other news, I have finished planning one full year of school on my free curriculum. I just wrote up the last course description. Yeah!
