George Washington Carver: Struggle for Education
With George Washington Carver National Monument
This program begins with the class meeting the park ranger and discussing your What I Think Now quiz. We will talk about the early life of George Washington Carver, utilizing a variety of photos. Next, students will be asked to present their questions to the park ranger. We will compare schooling today with schooling during Carver's life. The last activity is a fun lesson from the Original Blue Back Speller, the same book Carver used during his early school years.
