This packet teaches students about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There are 4 activities included.
1. Create your own "I have a Dream Speech." This speech can be about, "How would you make the world a better place?" Or you can customize it to be anything you like for your classroom. "How would you make our school or classroom a better place?"
2. Reading Comprehension Questions:
There are 6 questions that the students will answer from the MLK reading passage.
3. Time Line:
I have included a Time Line with two formats. One format has just the dates and the students fill in the event. The second format has the event and the students add the date. I made both to give you an option of which one you prefer.
4. Writing Prompt: "Why do we celebrate Martin Luther King?" This is a place for the students to write about what they have learned from the reading, time line and from writing their own speeches on how to enact change for the better.
