Today we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and enduring Civil Rights legacy. This is a great time to introduce students to this great man through focused activities. So, I created a cool interdisciplinary guide to do just that!
In this post I have included a link to a complete PDF lesson series, with printable activities and a resources list, that is adapted for grades K-4/5. The pack focuses on literacy, timelines, responding to reading, and webquest-based research to guide students to a better understanding of Dr. King.
As a bonus, I’m including a sneak peek look at one of the activities in the bundle. Martin Luther King Day FREE Lesson plan! This is just ONE of three well researched and sourced activities that will work in K-4/5 classrooms.
Please feel free to download, print, and use in your classroom. If you do, please post this website onto your personal Facebook page, Twitter account, and/or email the link to your colleagues. I am trying hard to build up my readership, and every little bit counts! Thank you!
Also, if you liked this lesson plan (or bought the complete plan at my Teachers Pay Teacher store), let me know what other topics you want to cover! I’m planning a Black History biography guide, a Women’s History webquest, and something pretty cool for poetry month. At least, I think it’s cool!
How do you celebrate Dr. King’s legacy?
