This year, I taught my class about Martin Luther King, Jr. with the following videos:
To teach the concepts of current global injustices the students may not be aware of, I discussed & showed this video on 62 Million Girls aimed at making sure girls without access to education are given the ability to get an education. Michelle Obama has a program called "Let Girls Learn" and Malala's efforts are called "Girl Rising."
"The time is always right to do what is right." - Martin Luther King, Jr.After building enough background on this important leader, I used this great & FREE template by Jodi at Fun-in-First for my bulletin board.
this template, click the image above. Also, make sure you have the font: KG Eyes Wide Open installed. Lastly, the students cut & glue a picture of themselves to the bottom right corner.
Wayne Ford has created an infographic focusing on Martin Luther King Jr and some of his famous quotes. This is another great visual to share with your students as you help to build background!
