Each year, in January, we do a week long lesson on one of my favorite men in American History…Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Before we began our week long lesson, I did a little research on the internet and found many, many wonderful articles and pictures of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his family. I printed these resources to use for our week long lesson.
We also used two books that I purchased at the Scholastic Book Fair…one about Rosa Parks and one about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I explained the difference between slavery and indentured servants, so it wasn’t hard to explain why slavery was wrong. My children loved learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Then, at the end of the week long lesson, I had each of my children create a dream board to hang in their room…
I was very proud of each of my children’s dream boards…they worked very hard and had a lot of fun!
They also learned so much that week.
They learned that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed that all men are created equal…my kids agreed.
They learned that he believe that love is the answer…my kids agreed.
They learned that we are all people created by God in God’s own image…my kids agreed.
And they learned that we should treat others the way we want to be treated…my kids agreed.
If you get a chance to teach your children about this wonderful, kind, Christian man, then I highly recommend you do. He was one of the greatest men to walk this earth. ❤️
