Martin Luther King, Jr: Day of Service

With Martin Luther King, Jr's birthday next week, this week we shared the following videos with our 5th graders. We focused on the idea of using the day as a day of service--the perfect way to commemorate Dr. King.

We had a secondary activity where students scanned a QR code linked to a Padlet board. Here they could record reflections on the videos, Martin Luther King in general, and their idea of service. Their level of empathy and the commentary was striking.

What will you do this year to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King? 

At the very least, watch these videos. It's always good to remind our selves where we've been historically, and how powerful Martin Luther King, Jr.'s words are in this speech alone. Cheers to a great leader.
