History Detective Evidence Packets

This text is provided as background information for History Detectives: Voting Rights in Mississippi, 1964.

Here are the materials to download for students for their history detective evidence packets. Depending on the number of students you have, you may need to create duplicate packets so that your students can work in groups of three to five.

Each packet has the same map and overall situation document. The remainder of the documents are particular to the location. 

To enhance the experience for the students, it would be ideal to hand them their respective materials in folders marked Evidence Packets, Top Secret.
