Even though it's been hard these past few weeks, we still have gotten a lot of awesome learning in! A few weeks ago we learned all about Martin Luther King Jr. using my MLK Jr. unit. It always amazed me how compassionate young kids are and how they are so sad about how life used to be in our country just a few decades ago. They really enjoyed learning about Dr. King.
We started reading a lot of books about Dr. King. We talked about what a biography is and what we learned about him from each book. We also read several books about President Barack Obama. We talked about how Dr. King's hard work made it possible for President Obama to become the first African American president. We then filled out webs about each of them to show what we learned.
We also read a book about Dr. King from my unit and the kids colored and filled out their own book about what they learned.
We also created a class book where each student got choose one thing about Dr. King to write about:
