MLK Day Printables

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is already here!  We are halfway through our school year and I feel like I am AT LEAST a year behind! Ali's comment on my kindergartenrhode blog seems to sum it up better than any I have ever heard.

I did want to share some MLK printables that I created for my classroom.  I found ideas all over the net, but didn't find exactly the skills that my students will be working on.  I needed a timeline component  that my students could add to their journals so I created a timeline that my students could add the event to as we learn about the life of MLK Jr.  I also wanted a map skills component.  So I created a printable that will allow your students to follow important events in the life of MLK Jr. and then enter them into the legend.  (I plan on having my students choose a color and make a dot on the map for that event, and then add that color to the legend.)

I hope that you can use this with your students.  I am planning to add more of these type activities for some of the historical people that our state requires us to teach. (George Washington Carver, Amelia Earhart, etc.)
