Cesar Chavez

4th Graders are learning about Cesar Chavez. We read Harvesting Hope The Story of Cesar Chavez by Kathleen Krull and illustrated by Yuyi Morales. We learned about Cesar's nonviolent movement for equal rights and treatment for farmworkers. We were impressed with his compassion, patience, and march of 300 miles!

Check out the beautiful illustrations and true story of Cesar's amazing life!

The American Farmworkers Association flag
Ask a 4th grader what the eagle in center is when the flag is turned upside down.


  1. I read the same book to my class. Great choice! :)

  2. Hi Mrs.hrudka,
    When the flag is turn up-side down isn't it a pyramaid?
    See you in school tommarow,
