Product Description
This 72 page file contains a teaching power powerpoint on Dr. King that introduces the students to his life. The powerpoint has two embedded videos--one that highlights service (with Dr. King's voice) and the other is about the march on Washington. There is a brief read aloud plan for the book, "Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day" and an exerpt from Dr. King's 'I Have A Dream' speech. Students will discuss the importance of character through analyzing a short close text of the speech.
There is a pocket chart timeline activity that can be used to introduce students to the concept of a timeline during whole group reading. Students can extend this learning with a personal timeline that is also provided in this pack.
I've added a writing unit to this pack as well. There are resources for opinion based writing, narrative writing, and informative writing as well. I've even included a mini-checklist for students to use while peer editing.
I've also added an MLK Craftivity to use as a culminating activity if you so choose! :)
Finally, I've included a few worksheets/thinking maps that can be used to deepen the understanding of the content being covered.
Lots of love went into this pack! :)
I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed making it! :)
