Get Inspired by MLK, Jr.'s Dream | Worksheets | Education.com

Martin Luther KingMartin Luther King, Jr. Activities

Here are several activities I thought might interest you for homeschool or classroom:
You can read a biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. at Nobelprize.org here:http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1964/king-bio.html

Check out a book about MLK, Jr. from your local library, and help your kid get inspired by this amazing activist's achievements. He'll dream up his very own goal in life, and then draw a picture to illustrate it. Get Inspired by MLK, Jr.'s Dream | Worksheets | Education.com

They also have a Civil Rights Word Find here:

Test your knowledge of the Civil Rights Movement with this crossword puzzle.http://www.education.com/worksheet/article/civil-rights-crossword/
Here's a nice way to combine cool art into the activity with a collage: http://www.education.com/activity/article/create-dream-collage-book/
Kids may cringe when you ask them to write a book report, but when you show them how to do one in an nontraditional way, like in an accordion-style timeline, they'll have much more fun expressing their creativity. http://www.education.com/activity/article/martin-luther-king-jr-timeline/
