Martin Luther King Jr. Thematic Unit

Primary Bliss


Are you looking for an interactive, integrated, engaging social studies unit to teach your students about Martin Luther King, Jr.? If so, this is it! This 7 day unit is great to use while teaching students about black history, or any time of the year. We have integrated social studies, reading, close reading, vocabulary development, a comprehension strategy (Determining Importance), phonics, writing, and art all in a 7 day unit that is highly interactive. We strive to make our products as low prep as possible, but in our experience it seems a little prep goes a long way in regards to happy, engaged learners who remember the experiences we create for them (most of this unit is print and go, but the art project does require prep, as does the Determining Importance lesson). We also strive to take all the "guess work" out of how to plan your unit and have created very detailed lesson plans for you to follow if you choose. Your students will love learning all about this amazing man, and you will love having a highly engaging unit all planned out and ready to go!
