Here are some ideas of books, activities and more that can be used in the classroom or in library programs.
A Picture Book of Cesar Chavez by David and Michael Adler and illustrated by Marie Olofsdotter presents a biography appropriate in length and depth for younger elementary students.
Harvesting Hope: The Story of Cesar Chavez (also available in Spanish) is an excellent biography, and a recipient of the 2004 Pura Belpré illustration honor. Written by Kathleen Krull and illustrated by Yuyi Morales.
César Chavez: The Struggle of Justice / La lucha por la historia presents a biography of César in a bilingual format.
Dolores Huerta: A Hero to Migrant Workers celebrates César's partner, who fought alongside him and was a fearless leader herself.
Perhaps my favorite, Side by Side: The Story of Dolores Huerta and César Chavez / Lado a lado: La historia de Dolores Huerta y César Chavez presents the story of each of these important leaders and their work together.
