Toolbox for Change

Toolbox for Change Activity:

Toolbox for change: Everyone will receive a photocopy of a toolbox. Fill your toolboxes with "tools" for change (things used by Civil Rights leaders in their struggle for civil rights). We will brainstorm a list of five things as a class. Each individual must come up with ten additional "tools". You will need to find pictures of these things (or pictures of things that symbolize your "tools"), or words from magazines. Cut out your pictures/words and glue them in your "toolbox". Write a brief explanation of why you selected each tool on the back of your "toolbox".

For extra credit, use google images to find pictures of famous Civil Rights activists. Print, cut, and paste the pictures in the margins of your poster.
