This unit is meant to be used with the book Who Was Martin Luther King, Jr.? By Bonnie Bader. It is part of a series of books published by Grosset & Dunlap, a division of Penguin Group Inc. The Scholastic book order club often has these books and that is a great way to get free books using your bonus points.
The students love these books as they are simple but filled with tons of information and fascinating facts about different people in past history and current.
We purchase enough copies so students are paired with literacy partners and can read the chapters and work on the activity pages together. This can also be used as an Independent Reading Project or in Guided Reading Groups.
