PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let’s Learn About Martin Luther King PowerPoint Lesson will help you present age-appropriate content to your students in first grade, second grade, or third grade. The animated PowerPoint with illustrations will keep young learners engaged as the text is read and discussed. It is perfect for use with a Smart Board or other interactive whiteboard; however it can be used without this technology as long as you have a computer and PowerPoint software. The final page of the PowerPoint includes links to four short online videos related to Martin Luther King, Jr. that are suitable for students in grades 1-3.

The sample images show the title slide from the PowerPoint along with sample slides. The preview download shows all 53 of the slides from the PowerPoint. Please view the PDF preview before purchase to make sure the content is suitable for your students and your lesson goals.

The Goals and Objectives for this lesson are as follows:
Lesson Goals

The students will understand the significance of Martin Luther King Day.
Learning Objectives:
The student will be able to identify events in Martin Luther King's life.
The student will be able to explain why we celebrate Martin Luther King Day.

• Links to four short online videos related to Martin Luther King (included on slide 52 of the PPT)

Animations and links will work when the PowerPoint is viewed in the slideshow mode. A click is needed to advance to the next slide. Animations within each slide are timed. The slide show will work best if you wait until animations stop moving before clicking to advance.

All of the images used in this PowerPoint are in the public domain or permitted for use. Documentation for each photo can be found in the notes sections of the PPT.

After purchase, please remember to leave feedback to get your TpT points that will give you a credit on future purchases!

Product Questions & Answers

On  February 2, 2014Kadeen Whitby  (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi LAura love this product. I was just wondering if you knew that people can download the entire 53 page preview , remove the preview sign across each page and use it. That would mean they probably wouldn't need to buy it. I have seen it done. Just wanted to let you know that maybe you should do a smaller preview so you don't lose money. :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 2, 2014Laura's Lessons answered:
Thank you so much for the tip, Kadeen! The preview is in a PDF rather than a PPT, so I figured that I was fairly safe. But I have heard of programs out there that can edit PDFs. You're right! Even if the PDF version is edited, the content could still be used without the PREVIEW across even if it's not in PPT. I do need to go over all of my previews and make them more secure. Thanks for taking the time to let me know!

On  January 20, 2014,  Buyer asked:
It opens up in symbols? what program is this in?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 20, 2014Laura's Lessons answered:
It is in PowerPoint and will open up correctly if you have Microsoft PowerPoint on your computer. You can get a free PowerPoint viewer that will enable you to see the lesson. If you don't have PowerPoint, you can request a refund from TpT. I've had lots of sales of this lesson without a problem. I'm guessing that maybe you don't have PowerPoint?
