Who else is obsessed with motivational quotes? This is a fun art activity that you can integrate with your social studies and/or nonfiction unit of study about Martin Luther King Jr. If you want to integrate it with science, you can also have the students color the stars in all the different colors of the rainbow, teach about ROYGBIV/visual color spectrum and explain that the different colors represent how no matter what color your skin is, we are all equal.
-black and white traceable paper with simple quote "I have a dream."
-black and white traceable paper with longer quote "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
-font is the fun, 50's/60's style that was popular during the time MLK was an activist
