a few more MLK ideas

We read The Crayon Box That Talked with this activity.

some of my favorite books about Martin Luther King, Jr.

Display the doves with the title "We Believe in Peace"

Heart Art- create this symbolic art project- Dr/ King's vision of love and friendship between people of different races

write a class poem about peace

from the original TLC Winter book

My students really enjoyed this site. It gives you a virtual tour of the house Martin Luther King, Jr. grew up in .

"Sing a Song About Martin" is a great song to use when studying MLK, Jr. You can listen to the song, find the lyrics, and download the song at
