Students learn about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Learn along with Washington Township students as you honor the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday. Here is how some of our classrooms are learning and growing with activities leading up to #MLKDay2020.

Clearwater Elementary

Students read a story about Martin Luther king Jr. and added a bead to their bracelets, representing each different part of his life story. When the bracelet was complete, students recalled his story beautifully AND accurately and can now carry the story with them.

Northview Middle School will be playing excerpts of  Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches throughout the passing periods.

Westlane is celebrating the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during morning announcements all week, culminating in the entire school watching his “I have a Dream” speech on Friday.

 

Spring Mill students read Martin’s Big Words by Doreen Rappaport, and then watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyurjhRNOmw

This was followed by a discussion with these questions:

  • What did Martin do to change the world?
  • Why did the world need changing?
  • Do we see this change today?
  • What can we do to continue to make a difference like he did?

How you are honoring the legacy? Post about it on the Washington Township Facebook and Twitter using #MLKDay2020.
