A good friend of mine recently shared this with me. She made this workbook to use with the book, The Courage of Sarah Noble.
Wikipedia summarized the book this way: “The Courage of Sarah Noble by Alice Dalgliesh is the story of a young girl who travels with her father into Connecticut during the early 18th century, and her experiences with the native Schaghticoke.”
This month is Black History Month. I’ve put together a worksheet that goes over some of the main and significant events in American history relating to civil rights. It involves some reading comprehension and subtraction of dates to answer the 9 questions at the end. I recommend giving this to upper grades (5th or 6th grade).
It wasn’t until I taught in China that I even had to think about why we do April Fools’ Day.

Comprehension questions at the bottom.
