FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “Apartheid and Segregation”

by Unitedtoteach

6th – 12th Grade



These civil rights battles occurred on two different continents, yet they have many similarities. While one civil rights battle occurred under “apartheid” in South Africa, another civil rights battle occurred under “segregation” in the United States. In this activity, students use their book and internet research skills to find out the similarities and histories behind the civil rights battles that took place on two separate continents. How were people’s voting, speech, housing, education and transportation rights infringed? Have rights been improved in recent years? Students answer these questions through this activity. While there is an “answer key” included, answers will vary.
