MLK Day

MLK Day is approaching. I thought I would give some suggestions where to find some ideas for teaching your students.

Slide show on scholastic.com:

List of questions:

Photos and lesson plans:
http://holidays.pppst.com/MLK.html

Lots of teaching ideas for all grade levels on this scholastic site:
http://www2.scholastic.com/browse/search?query=Martin+Luther+King&x=17&y=7

Go to the Teacher's Store at scholastic.com for a list of books you can purchase

Some great songs, worksheets, and vocabulary:

You can also have your students write songs, raps, stories, etc. and present to the class. I think showing the entire class a slideshow or if you have a computer lab, you could post the above websites for them to view and then have them write what they learned. You could also give them a list of questions for them to find the answers to by using the computer.

I hope this will give you some new websites and teaching ideas.
