These activities will give your students a chance to practice empathy as they learn from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This pack is designed to supplement four stories that showcase the way MLK taught. You can structure these activities however you would like, but there are 4 lesson plans included that follow the ideas presented in the following stories:
-"Martin's Big Words" by Doreen Rappaport
-"The Peace Book" by Todd Parr
-"Wings" by Christopher Myers
-any biography about Martin Luther King Jr.
This unit can be used over the course of four days, reading one story each day then completing the activity that goes with each story.
The activities can also stand alone from the stories; the stories are not needed in order to complete the crafts and writing prompts.
