If you are looking for interesting ways to enable your children to focus on the life and work of Dr. King on his holiday, take a look at the King lessons and activities on educationworld.com, found here. Scholastic.org asked teachers around the nation how they honor the work and legacy of Dr. King, and you can find their great suggestions here. Although these activities were principally designed for teachers to use in the classroom, many of them are easy for you to do with your children at home. There are activities for children from kindergarten through high school on these sites–something for everyone.
When is the last time you’ve listened to King’s “I Have A Dream” speech? You can find an audio version and the transcript on The Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University here. Listen to it and read along with your son or daughter.
