This Martin Luther King Jr. activity is perfect for engaging students and helping them understand the significance of his "I Have a Dream" speech and the March on Washington.

The download includes a teacher's guide, reading, five primary sources to analyze, a worksheet, and a pop-up style Interactive Notebook page!

The reading includes an introduction describing the background leading up to the March on Washington and impact that it had. Links to the speech are included as well for you to use with your students.

Five primary source images and documents are provided for students to analyze. The worksheet features questions designed to get your students to think critically about the event, speech, and primary sources. A key for this is included for your convenience.

Finally, the Interactive Notebook page has students creating a pop-up of Martin Luther King along with several signs and the Lincoln Memorial. Students then decorate these and add notes based on what they read, hear, and see in the primary sources. Completed sample versions are also included for you to look at with the download.

An editable Google Docs version of the activity is also included if you are in a paperless class or prefer the digital format.

All of this is explained in a simple teacher's guide which is included as well!
