That’s the date set aside to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, the birthday of a man who edified one of my favorite Scriptures.
Reverend King was a God-fearing man who loved the Lord and served Him by peacefully speaking up for those who couldn’t speak for themselves. I want my children to know about him and people like him. I want them to know that while there are injustices in the world, there are people who stand up and speak up to make a difference. I hope that by knowing about these people, they will be inspired to be one of them.
What a privilege to be in charge of their education, to make sure they learn about important people like Dr. King! As I have been gathering information and resources to share with my one-room classroom, I thought I’d share those resources with you.
Biography.com has a good biography of MLK Jr’s birthday along with several videos and a collection of photos from his life.
This video about Dr. King from Kid President is pretty awesome. I enjoyed watching it and look forward to sharing it with my kids.
Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech is available on You Tube.
What about you? Are you planning anything special for Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday? Do you have resources that might be helpful to other homeschool moms? Share your ideas in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you!
