Martin Luther King Jr. FREEBIE

Martin Luther King Jr.  ~ Timeline Freebie
The life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is an important part of history.  WE all have the responsibility to teach our students about this amazing leader.    Often I hear teachers talk about how they can't fit in Social Studies as much as they would like - due to curriculum overload and simply not enough time in the day.  I am sure we all work very hard to try to squeeze it in ~ but at times we fall short of the mark when it comes to doing a man like Martin justice.  I hate hearing teachers say they touched on it for a day.  I spend the entire week immersing my students in the life of MLK Jr.  I find those teachable moments and run with it ~ this unit offers so much to learn  - not just the history - but life lessons that all children will benefit from. 
   In my 21 years in the classroom, I have found that integrating Social Studies and Science are the only way to fit it in.. so I have developed numerous integrated units to complement the units I need to teach.
Here is a preview of our unit that was just UPDATED this week ~ I love the clipart from Melonheadz and Creative Clips - it makes the unit so much better!!

To help you get started we want to share this FREEBIE with  you !
This is part of the larger unit shown above.   
Here is a peek at it - click here to download.

Let's take the time and teach our students about this amazing leader!   He deserves the recognition!
Honor Dr. King this year and every year!
