FREE Martin Luther King Jr. Poem, Questions and Writing Activity

Hello Friends!
It just kind of hit me that Martin Luther King Jr. Day is literally right around the corner!  I wanted to jump on and share a free file with you.  It contains a poem about Martin Luther King Jr. along with a set of questions. I like having my students cut the paper in half and add the poem to their poetry journal.  Then they create a meaningful illustration or visualization for it. 

Sometimes I like partnering up my students for the questions.  They sit back to back as they answer them.  Then they turn around and compare their answers.  They spend time defending or justifying their answers and "coaching" each other as they check their work together. 

There is also a writing activity in which students brainstorm how we can make our school and our world better places.   I have the kindest and sweetest kids imaginable.  I can't wait to see what they come up with!
