Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”

Since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday (January 15) I have been doing little activities to introduce my children to one of the most famous social activist who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s. My kids are a little too young to comprehend the impact he had on this country, however I did try to teach them little facts about his life (did you know his birth name was actual Michael? His father later changed it to Martin Luther).

We colored and made headbands and talked a little about his most famous speech ‘I Have A Dream’.  There were a lot of worksheets I got for FREE from Teachers Pay Teachers Website.

We also got to make some pretty cool headbands.

We were also able to do a little cut & paste timeline of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s most important life events. My son enjoyed it!

 We also watched a cool animated video about the life of MLK.

 

How are you celebrating and teaching your kids about Dr. King’s legacy?
