Supports Common Core State Standards for Reading Informational Text:

PreK and 1st grade teachers may want to read the facts to their students. Depending on the level of your students, you may choose to complete the first comprehension check or the second.
2nd grade teachers could have students work in pairs or independently.
In the first comprehension check, your students will need to answer six questions, three of which are fill-in-the-blank. In the second one, your students will recall that Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream was for equality and they may draw a picture of friends who are of different, diverse ethnic backgrounds.
If you like this FREEBIE, please provide feedback. I'm new around here and could really use YOUR help. Thank you! :)
