Service learning projects and Martin Luther King, Jr. naturally go hand-in-hand. In Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired Service Learning Project by the2teachers you will receive a 28 page product.

WHAT SKILLS WILL MY KIDS BE USING?
Students will use traditional academic skills like reading and writing. They will also work on social skills like cooperation, teamwork, empathy, kindness, group planning, verbal communication, give and take, completing basic job applications, basic interviewing skills, presentation skills, assessing peers work, art integration and more!
WHY SHOULD I DO A SERVICE LEARNING PROJECT?
Research shows that students learn by doing. This project gives control, choice and accountability over to the class. You guide the students through the project, but they are taking the lead. Service learning takes abstract concepts and makes them real. This will leave a lasting impression on your students that allow them to make connections between the "academic world" and the "real world".
Please note that although there are 10 lessons included you should not equate that to 10 days of activities. Depending on the service learning project your class chooses, the project may be a short-term or a long-term project.
