Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Several years ago, I wrote about some activities my students and I did on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. You can read about that series of lessons here.

This year here are some new activities to try!
 
This is my favorite project: Martin Luther King mobile! On each little piece, students write about what King thought, said, saw, did to change the world, and more. It's a cute craftivity and a good way to have kids write in little bits about his life.

 I think this "I Have a Dream" bunting would make such a lovely decoration - string your room up with the kids' dreams for the future!

A few years ago, we made Martin Luther King fact cubes. These are fun and an easy way for students to think about what information is important about King's life.

To round out your unit, here are some great book titles to read aloud! 
 


(I like Adler's books - they always have a lot of information)

 
 
You can grab the above activities at TPT! Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
