PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Kids love these! Unique way for kids to present information they have researched or learned.This activity challenges them to think critically and present the information they learned in the form of a postcard/letter. Students will research MLK JR. and write a postcard to someone (another classmate, teacher, parent) . I have provided 8 ready made prompts and one blank card. I have also included 2 versions of the cover. One where students draw their own illustrations or cut and paste photos/images and one where there is a line drawing of MLK Jr. Image from discoveryschool.org

Easy to make! Choose a front and back design. Copy front to back on cardstock or construction paper. Let kids cut them out!

Students will research and write information in a creative format that challenges them to think critically. The prompts are:

If MLK Jr. were alive today I think he would...

If I met MLK Jr. I would ask him...

I have learned a lot about MLK JR. Did you know.....

Three interesting facts about MLK JR.are....

I have a dream like MLK JR. My dream is....

MLK Jr. was born... He lived in.... Something important about him is..... He died..... Something you should remember about him is....

MLK Jr. gave an important speech. In his speech he said....

One blank card.

Great to display. Fun for students give to classmates to read. Great for a pen pal activity. The possibilities are endless! To take it even further, you could buy or make a mailbox for them to mail letters to you or have each student create a mailbox so they can receive the postcards from each other!

A different approach to a research report!
