Whether you have to work tomorrow or have the day off in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., chances are that you might want to teach your students a little more about the man and his accomplishments. Here are a few resources and freebies to help you with your lesson planning this week:
Panicked Teacher has this poem and close reading activity all about Martin Luther King Jr.
I had blogged about this mobile we made last week. It is a freebie from Scholastic.
Here is a lesson plan to go along with the book Martin's Big Words.
Your students can create a Martin Luther King timeline of his important accomplishments with this idea from Crayola.
