Martin Luther King Jr. Day Activities

I'm excited to teach about MLK Jr. this year to my kids! We're going to do lots of activities on Monday to learn about him. There's no sense in "taking a day off" for the holiday because my husband will still be working and I'll be at home all day with the kids anyway!

I created a mystery picture graph of MLK Jr. - find it here!

This activity is a little hard for my little ones, so I went searching for other fun activities we could do! We're going to read, Happy Birthday Martin Luther King by Jean Marzollo.
 
 
Then do these fun activities I found - a poster activity all about MLK Jr. It's a free download from Curriculum Castle!
 
Martin Luther King Jr. Poster Activity FREEBIE!
 
 
And then we'll make something like this craft I found on Pinterest!

I'd love to hear of fun things you do in your classroom to teach about/celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.!
