Integrate STEAM in your classroom with this engaging Read Aloud Companion Activity to Martin's Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by Doreen Rappaport.
Integrate literacy, writing, and math with STEAM. Students choose one of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s big words, write it out on graph paper, and measure it's area and perimeter. After they have completed the math portion, students write about how the word they selected for the project relates to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
