Commemorate MLK, Jr. Day with Your Students

by Kristie Burk

USMC-09611In one week, it will be Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  Your students may know who Martin Luther King Jr.  was, but they may not understand his impact on the Civil Rights Movement or his overall importance in American history. Your students won’t be in school next Monday, but let’s make sure they know why!

Check out this Scoop It where I curated some resources for you, including lesson plans, primary source documents, videos, activities and more.

Have you celebrated the holiday with your students in the past or do you already have plans to do so this year? If there are sites or activities that you would like to share with your colleagues, please let us know at!
