Lots of great options to choose from and have your students do to study Martin Luther King.

Students love learning about Martin Luther King, Jr. They find it hard to believe that our country could have been so different from today. His dream came true! Hollis and Gretchen

I used the Rosa Parks activity when talking about the Civil Rights Movement. The students enjoyed creating the bus and it helped reinforce how Rosa Parks had an impact on civil rights. The smaller template still had to be modified since it didn't fit on the paper correctly. It was too long.
On  March 10, 2013Hollis Hemmings answered:
When we made the buses, the template worked fine. Possibly, we just allowed for the difference your speaking of. We WILL check and try to make any adjustment. Thanks so much! The bus is such a powerful demonstration of the civil rights issues. We are delighted your students benefited from the activity. Hollis and Gretchen

I also loved the bus activity. We made a huge bus instead and posted all our MLK, Rosa Parks, & Ruby Bridges work on it.

Wow! We'd love to see a picture of your display. The bus activity truly painted the picture of the past. We are so glad your children learned from it. Hollis and Gretchen

I used many of these activities with my guided reading group. I loved the bus activity & the students did too. They all looked so nice lined up on a shelf. All your units are awesome. I'm sad to see these big boxes coming into our school with adoption materials for reading. I hate to think we'll get a new reading series and I can't use your Harcourt materials!

Oh, no! What series did you system adopt?
