Martin Luther King, Jr.

We celebrated and honored Martin Luther King, Jr. last week.  The children watched a 6-minute Brain Pop, Jr video and learned what life was like when Martin Luther King, Jr. was growing up.  They learned that he fought for equal rights in a peaceful, nonviolent manner.  One of our students spontaneously shouted, "That is ridiculous!"as she watched the movie segment about segregation.  It's difficult for our young children to understand there was a time when people were judged for the color of their skin.  Our discussions led to role-playing and wonderful, kind-hearted student writings.
