This idea comes from a fabulous teacher friend of mine, who creates this board every year when she teaches civil rights leaders. She posts the pictures of the different leaders at the beginning of the unit. When the kids learn about each person, she adds the quote spoken by that person and her 2nd graders discuss its meaning. When they're done studying that person, the kids write their own quote for the person - something they think that civil rights leader would say. By the end of the unit, the board is filled with inspiring people and uplifting quotes!
