Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a wonderful opportunity to teach an important part of history and the Civil Rights Movement to intermediate level students! This packet explores Martin Luther King's life, his "I Have a Dream" speech, and his work to make this world a more peaceful, equal place.
The packet is easy to use; simply print and you are ready to go! No centers to create, cutting or laminating to do, or colored ink to worry about!
This packet includes:
• A Timeline Activity - Students construct a timeline of the major events of Dr. King's life
• A Close Read Activity - Using the "I Have a Dream" speech and Close Read techniques, intermediate level students can have a much better understanding of the meaning of this famous speech
• "I Have a Dream" Writing Activity - Students write a paragraph about their own dream for a better world; includes prewriting organizer and final draft paper
• Coloring Sheets and Word Search
