Martin Luther King Jr. Day Activities | Booklet + Interactive Digital Notebook
This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day resource is another way for students to learn more about Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a lesson to integrate real world reading, writing, social studies, history, and current events, all into one activity.
Although initially designed for special education students, any teacher looking to provide their students an introduction and continued discussion around Martin Luther King, Jr. will benefit from basic reading comprehension, vocabulary, and engaging tasks.
Reading about history made accessible: Most of our students have a complicated relationship with reading, which can feel ingrained as they get older. Plus, a lot of texts can feel out of reach as our students reach older grades.
This resource gives our students more opportunities to read about history, events, and famous leaders they may have or may not have heard of as well as an interactive component for students as they read.
Differentiation options: this resource includes differentiated levels of activities for your students to engage in the lesson, in digital and printable versions.
Ideas for use: warm-up, morning meeting, academic lesson, centers, choice time, small group, 1:1, whole class
