Intermediate and Middle School Age Online Inquiry and Social Action Activities
Arising from the words and work of our Jane Addams Children’s Book Award authors and illustrators, each inquiry and social action learning activity here can be completed online with no need for outside resources aside from pencil, paper, and occasionally art supplies. While created in response to the coronavirus school shutdown in the spring of 2020, the activities have been updated to be as useful now as then. Click on the titles below each picture and find materials from and about the author along with guiding questions for reading, writing, reflection, and action.
Meet Lynda Blackmon Lowery coauthor (along with Elsbeth Leacock & Susan Buckley) of the 2016 Jane Addams Children’s Book Award Winning Title for Older Children, ‘Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom: My Story of the Selma Voting Rights March.’
