We have been learning about the man behind the day year after year, but have we stopped to teach our kids when and how this day came to be a national holiday?
Your download includes a 14 page eBook walking students through important people that helped in the over 15 year campaign to get Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday recognized as a federal holiday.
4 activities are included to show student responses and understanding.

-Build a Timeline
-Illustrate a booklet
I hope you enjoy learning about this important day with your students.
