Celebrating Black History Month with a "Ruby Bridges" Poem and Writing Activity

Poetry is a great way to build fluency and get students writing. This poetry form that I used for my Ruby Bridges poem is called an Instant 5W Poem. It's a very simple form where the 5 W's are answered in the poem. After reading the poem about Ruby Bridges students can research another African American and write a 5W poem using the graphic organizer below. This packet includes instructions and a special writing paper.
