Use this Ruby Bridges lesson to introduce your KS1 class to the amazingly brave six-year-old little girl, who paved the way for the desegregation of schools in 1960s America.


Your children will briefly learn about what segregation meant for black and white people in America, before finding out about Ruby's first day at school, and the momentous changes this seemingly normal act put into motion.

In the activities provided, children are asked to put themselves into Ruby's shoes, and imagine how she might have felt at different times. In the alternative task provided, children will explore the experience of segregation in a group activity.
