Martin Luther King Activities

Just thought I'd share this fun bulletin board we made for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  The kids loved it when they found their own hand prints that they had traced and cut out from construction paper. 

It was inspired by the quote , "Love is the key to the problems of the world", from the book Martin's Big Words.  If you haven't already read it, it's a must read!  The video is at the end of this post if you don't already have the book.

Each of the kids wrote their own dreams for the world. 

Many of you have asked for the quote so I've included it in the download. You can grab both the heart template and quote here.

We also read about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and answered questions about his life, completed some fun activities, a craft, and created a timeline of the events in his life.
