Ruby Bridges has always been an interesting history figure to me.
She was such a young girl when she made history and she managed to handle it with grace and class.
Naturally, I wanted my children to learn about Ruby Bridges but I also like to share her story with my students. And that’s why this mini Ruby Bridges history lesson is one I’m excited to share with all of you!
This is a fantastic history activity for early elementary grades!
It’s a great fit for Black History Month, but you could really use it any time of the year, because it’s also American history. And it’s so easy for early grade students to relate to her experience as well.
