  3. How did she feel about being called The Mother of the Civil Rights Movement?
  4. Name three awards she received in her life.
  5. Where was Rosa Park's casket displayed after her death (famous place)?
  6. How old was she when she died? What year did she die?

Please write down the questions and the answers to bring to school on Friday. I will assign this as homework for Thursday night because we will be finished with Saving Shiloh on Wed. If you want to do the assignment ahead of time you can. That way you would have no homework on Thursday night. Mrs. Kennedy
