Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Today with Tank being off of school, we had a MLK Holiday. To start out, we watched a video on MLK Jr. on Brain Pop Jr.! After watching it, we watched a YouTube video of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech. To my surprise, Turbo watched it with interest.
After discussing what segregation was, we labeled different things in the house for "Blacks Only" and "Whites Only".
Once they understood the different colors of race, we made a craft showing that all colors can be friends, and that we are to always love our enemies.
Then I asked Aidan to summarize Dr. King's Dream, and then to write his own dream.
