Satchel Paige by Lesa Cline-Ransome

Recommended Grades: 4-8

Another great picture book biography, this one details key moments in the life of Satchel Paige.

Lesson Idea:   


Biography Mentor Text/Civil Rights: Read aloud Satchel Paige.  Discuss the implications civil rights had on baseball.  Was Satchel Paige able to overcome the restrictions placed on him as a black man?  Pair this with We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball
