I Have a Dream {with a FREEBIE!}

I’m afraid to even write this post…because it means that we’re gearing up for the return from winter break. *sigh* Oh well – it was a super restful {but productive!} break!

I’m excited to share my latest, I Have a Dream – A Martin Luther King, Jr. Unit! It’s been on my to-do list since last MLK Day & I’ve finally put it all together in one place!

To start the unit, we begin with a schema chart. As the kids share an idea, I write it onto a post-it {yellow for What We Know and green for What We Want to Know} I keep this schema chart up throughout our study so we can refer back to it, add to it or clear up misconceptions we may have started with!

Then, over the next few weeks, I slip in a bunch of projects, activities and discussions to further expand their knowledge of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the importance he’s had in American history!
