Martin Luther King Jr. dedicated his life to making the world a better place for everyone! Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the greatest civil rights leaders and one of the most influential people in American history.

What's Inside:

  • Reading passages about Dr. King’s life:
  • Meet Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Mini-booklet with timeline
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Organizers (2)
  • Vocabulary Posters
  • Vocabulary Flip Flaps
  • 6 Page Martin Luther King Jr. Flipbook

There are three main activities:


Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip-flaps or use them as a center activity.


Next, have students read the passages where they will meet Martin Luther King Jr. and learn about his life. Articles are written in a kid-friendly format with comprehension questions to check for understanding.


Have students complete the Mystery Flaps and the 6-page Flipbook. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flipbooks can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.

*The organizers included in this activity pack are the same ones that are sold separately in my store.

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day this year with this hands-on activity pack!
