Our Unit on Martin Luther King Jr.

I began our unit of the week last week by reading the book (see below) each day before Morning Meeting ends explaining to the students why we have no school on Monday. The book it titled, “Let’s Read About…Martin Luther King, Jr. by Courtney Baker. After reading the story, the students colored pictures of Martin Luther King (one picture is below). The next day, the students completed a questionnaire about the book by filling in the blanks (see below). During the middle of the week, I showed a video on You Tube called, “Our Friend, Martin.” The video was child friendly and gave details about Martin Luther King Jr.’s story.  At the end of the week, the students did an activity where they had to share their own dream.

The MLK bulletin board are  shown in the pictures below.
