Are you looking for an activity to celebrate Martin Luther King Day? This print and use craft project is based upon the "I Have a Dream" speech. It is also great for Black History Month.

Your class can honor the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by writing about their dreams for a better world.

Here's How It Works:

  1. Students choose 2 thematic graphic squares to color.
  2. The student writes their dreams on 2 writing blocks.
  3. The four squares are glued onto construction paper to create a paper quilt!
