If you’re looking for a few things for Martin Luther King Day, perhaps you’ll find one of these FREEBIES helpful.
I start off my new units with a KWL. Older students write their own, then we get together as a whole group and make a class one.
I use bookmarks as incentives, or a little surprise on my students’ desks, and designed 7 for MLK Day.
I spent a lot of time doing research on Dr. King, and decided to make a list of 95 age-appropriate “fast facts” about him.
There is so much new vocabulary involved when studying about Dr. King. Word searches are an interesting and fun way to reinforce them, so I made up two.
I also challenge my kiddos to see how many words they can make up using the letters in Martin Luther King, and included my list in the packet. Interestingly, many of the words could be used to describe MLK, so I have my kiddos highlight those.
Quotes make great writing prompts and I’ve included 35 personal favorites for Dr. King. There’s also a bibliography of great books for younger kiddos, perfect for explaining diversity and the need for equality.
