Last Friday my students celebrated Martin Luther King Jr.
We watched the Brainpop movie about his life,
read a book explaining Martin's dream in kid language,
and used this freebie from The Teacher Next Door to illustrate a quote from Martin.
We then took construction paper and brainstormed their own wishes for the world... those wishes and dreams that would help everyone on the planet. Love how the bulletin board came out! Great reminders that everyone can make a difference.
