Product Description
If you are looking for something different for January and February, here is an idea. My inspiration for this lesson was the 1968 song “Abraham, Martin and John” " written by Dick Holler and the first recording by Dion. It is a tribute to the memory of four assassinated Americans, all icons of social change, namely Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy. It was written in response to the assassinations of King and the younger Kennedy in April and June 1968.

This is a great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and/or President’s Day lesson. I have used it with my fifth through eighth grade classes. With older students I expect more: detailed research, extensions and a report instead of a paragraph, I have included Graphic Organizers and an Answer Key. This lesson integrates Social Studies by teaching your students facts about men who have made important contributions to our great country. Language Arts concepts include: research, writing a report (or paragraph), Drawing Conclusions and Compare/Contrast.
