I always value the opportunity, as a teacher, to be able to teach my students about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  He was an inspiration who stood up for what is right, even though it wasn't popular.  In the classroom, we would do many activities involving Revered King in order to help my young students begin to understand how pivotal he was in our history.  We would watch the speech, read illustrated books on MLK, discuss what parts of Dr. King's dream have come true and what areas we are still working on as a society.  My kids would write their own speeches and present them to their classmates.  These would them be talking points that we could return through the rest of the year.

In honor of Dr. King, here are some great ideas for sharing King's legacy with your students.

Here are some basic resources:

Do you have an activity/resources that you use with your students?  Please comment and share!
