Writing our own speeches either about equality, or about some other issue students want to see changed...this is a perfect accompaniment for the book March On! The Day My Brother Martin Changed the World.
Making a birthday cake for MLK...this can go along with Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King.
Contemplating what big idea we think of when we think of MLK...this can be an activity for Martin's Big Words.
We will also be doing a couple other activities from the pack - I plan on doing one every afternoon. Again, you do not have to have the recommended picture books in order to do the activities. There are also signs provided for ready-to-go bulletin board displays for January and February (Black History Month). I am looking forward to the message of peace we will be discussing all week - hopefully my students will act more peaceful toward each other as well!
