After reading the text, ask students to share any new information that they learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. For example, the kind of games he played with his son, he was not a tall man, and he had the boys burn the toy guns they had received as Christmas presents.
Martin Luther King lll and his sister, “complained” to their parents that they didn’t want to go to the new school.
Can you think of a time when you had to go to a new school? How did you feel? Why?
If you were Martin Luther King lll and his sister having to go to their new school, how would you feel? Why?
I prefer to have a hard copy of the book to share with my students. That way I can use post-its to pinpoint discussion points. If you are unable to get a copy here is a link https://youtu.be/msrEu5tOGMA to the book being read online.
Happy MLK Day,
