If you’re looking for a “craftivity” for Martin Luther King Day, I think you’ll enjoy this.
(I have a dream...) writing prompt dangler.
The “mpatapo” (em-pa-ta-poe) symbol means “knot of pacification/reconciliation”. It is a symbol of peacemaking. Mpatapo is an African symbol known as adinkra, from the Asante tribe of Ghana.
I thought it was an appropriate representation of what Dr. King
tried to do with his peaceful marches, sit-ins and speeches, as he
sought nonviolent solutions for abolishing discrimination; so I featured
it on this quick, easy and fun MLK Day craftivity.
packet includes a writing prompt for the back that older students can
fill in. I’ve also included the meaning and short background information
in a square that younger students can glue to the back of theirs.
There’s also a set of mini Martin Luther King photo tiles (Public Domain) that students can choose from, to glue one to the center of their mpatapo symbol if they want to.
