What Are You Doing For Martin Luther King Day?
If you plan on celebrating Martin Luther King Day with your students, you may want to take a peek at the 40-page MLK mini unit I’ve put together.
It includes several “craftivities” that are quick, easy and make lovely bulletin boards or hallway decorations.
The 1st is a stained glass window, where students can glue colored tiles in a pattern or simply keep it random.
I’ve included one of my favorite Langston Hughes poems on the back.
I chose a dove to top off this “dangler” because I feel that Martin Luther King's beliefs are synonymous with peace, which the dove is a symbol of.
My Y5’s enjoyed accordion folding paper, to make the 3-D wings, which was a great fine motor activity for them.
The MLK Letter Dangler, allows students an opportunity to express what their dream is, and is a nice review of those capital letters as well.

Snowflakes are a huge theme for me in January, so I combined making a strip snowflake for a Martin Luther King activity.
If you cut strips in a variety of colors, your students will create a rainbow blizzard for you, that looks truly awesome on a bulletin board.
Use aluminum foil for the background for that extra bit of pizzazz and suspend cardboard or plastic snowflakes from the ceiling , so that they dangle just in front of the top of your b. board.
