Teach Peace Now Lesson: The Story of Ruby Bridges

This Teach Peace Now lesson plan, designed to be used in conjunction with The Story of Ruby Bridges by Robert Coles and Through My Eyes by Ruby Bridges, explores Ruby Bridges’ courageous journey as the first African American child to integrate into an all-white school. Students will observe and record differences among their classmates, promote critical thinking, and enhance social skills through activities and discussions. They will understand the meaning of equality and become familiar with pertinent vocabulary. Additionally, students will select character words describing Ruby Bridges, gain knowledge of her contribution to society, and make connections to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights movement. Through discussions, writings, and artwork, students will communicate their understanding of differences and their effects on our lives.
