Wondering what to do to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. with your students?
How about this interactive activity that will not only be engaging, but also informative and fun!
In this Activity Packet dedicated to help students better understand who MLK Jr. was and the role he played in American history, you will find:
- Fill in the blank "I Have a Dream" speech with a video link to complete the activity;
- over 21 'wh' questions for the students to look back to the text and answer (focusing on comprehension, ability to answer wh questions, use complete sentences and specific vocabulary, find evidence to support answers);
- "Who was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?" Note-taking Activity, where the students have to listen to the information presented and write down as many facts as they can remember from the video;
- A list of additional video resources you can use for the activity.
