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.

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.

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.
