Martin Luther King Jr.

We learned about Martin Luther King, Jr this week as well as why being different is good. We read a story called Being Different is Being Special. Then we examined in small groups a white and brown egg. We started a double bubble map to compare/contrast the two. Then we cracked them open and looked at the inside and finished our map. We learned that even though people are different colors on the outside, we are the same on the inside.

We discussed what peace looks and feels like. Then we wrote a poem about peace and made hand print doves.

We also read the poem A Box of Crayons. We talked about similarities and differences among people. Then we illustrated self portraits and colored our crayons.

We watched a Discovery Streaming video that showed us about MLK's life from boy to adult. Then we created a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast our class with MLK.

We listened to MLK's I Have a Dream speech. Then we wrote about our own dreams.
