Product Description

This product is everything the busy classroom has been looking for! You'll receive a FULL day of lesson plans based on Martin's Big Words by Doreen Rappaport (a lesson for reading, writing, math, science, social studies, plus a hallway display!).

How does this work?

Your download will come with 3 files: student activity sheets, teacher lesson plans, and an informational PowerPoint. Simply print, gather your materials, and GO! No need to look for extra activities, or write out your lesson plans.

Lessons Included:

Reading: Complete the interactive read aloud of Martin's Big Words. Then complete 4 activity sheets that focus on comprehension, quoting, and finding evidence. The comprehension questions can be used as an informal or formal assessment if you wish! You can preview the comprehension questions as a FREEBIE at this link!

Math: Split your class into centers to complete a "carousel style" rotation and a student recording sheet. Each station focuses on a big event in MLK, Jr.'s life and assigns coinciding math tasks. Skills include addition, subtraction, measurement, time, word problems, and more. I've provided 6 stations on varied levels (in the 3-5th grade range).

Writing: Your students will "take a stand" like MLK, Jr. did and write a persuasive argument. A planning template and 2 versions of writing paper are included.

Science: Complete a disappearing color science experiment as a class and fill out a scientific method activity sheet. Then, spend time with valuable discussion questions centering on the metaphor of "disappearing color" and MLK, Jr.'s work.

Social Studies: Present a Civil Rights Movement PowerPoint to your class as they fill out scaffolded notes. There are also assessment questions provided at the end of the PowerPoint and activity sheets. Please note: this activity is also available separately here! You can preview the PowerPoint and feedback before you buy!

Answer Keys are also included!
