Martin Luther King Activities-Fun w/video clips!
This interactive set of Literacy & Art activities has the students learning about the Life Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr through viewing a video of "Martin's Big Words" (link included), engaging in Pre and Post viewing activities, completing a cut & paste sequencing activity, then moving on to the actual "I Have a Dream Speech," the students will Listen (Link included) to the actual speech while reading along(link included so you can provide copies if you choose) and also engage in Pre and Post listening activities that involve the review and then extension of the use of similes and metaphors through writing and illustrating the visions in their heads. A concluding writing activity is also included that has the students write whether or not they think Dr. King's Dream has come true. I have included a full Teacher information page that gives you an outline of how I conduct this lesson to make it EASY on you and hopefully give you ideas on how you can incorporate this Super Mini lesson into your daily activities whether it be for Black History month or in observance of MLK's Birthday. I love lessons that involve the easy use of technology like this~very engaging!
