My 2 boys and I have been learning about Martin Luther King Jr. (Martin Luther King Day is Monday 1/21).
Both boys did a lapbook. I pieced the lapbook together using various different resources:
MLK Draw and Write
Various MLK Worksheets
MLK Reading Comprehension & Biography
We checked out the following books at the library for our study:
Then we did a craft – the hands are different ethnicities reaching out to each other
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream so we titled the craft this.
Art supplies needed:
Colored construction paper,
brown, white and black paint
The kids pained their hands and pressed them to the construction paper so that the hands were touching and once dried they wrote I Have a Dream….
While my 5 year old didn’t want to add anything to I Have a Dream but my 7 year old did, camping! Not quite what I was hoping he would write but at 7 that’s what’s on his mind!
