PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

3. Reveal a Quote with Grammar Review

4. Making Information Question: WH Question Words

6. Grammar Review: Noun, adjectives and verbs

This unit includes a short biographical reading about Martin Luther King Jr. and 3 follow up vocabulary exercise. This unit includes vocabulary words like discrimination, civil rights, courage, protest, refuse, segregated, inspire etc.

In the PRINTABLE “Reveal a Quote with Grammar Review” students will discover a hidden quote by Martin Luther King Jr. They need to identify different parts of speech (i.e. irregular plural nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions and irregular past tense verbs.) After identifying the words according to their parts of speech, they will then follow the directions and color them accordingly. If students don’t have colored pencils they can cross out the words instead. The blocks that remain will reveal the quote “I have a dream… ”. Students then write the quote at the bottom of the page and can discuss it with their teacher.

In the next PRINTABLE students will make information questions using the WH Question Words (who, where, when, why, how, how many etc.) Students will first read the answer to the question. The underlined word in the sentence will indicated which WH question word the students will need to use to write the correct question.
For example:
1. _________________________________________________
Martin Luther King Jr. was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement.
Students need to write the question “Who was Martin Luther King Jr.?”

In the following PRINTABLE students will unscramble the vocabulary words from the reading.

In the last PRINTABLE students will write a noun, adjective and verb for each of the initial letters in the name Martin Luther.
