MLK Jr. Day!
BrainPOP is a great resource for teaching students WHY they have the day off of school on Monday! There’s still time! Picture this: Start the day off tomorrow or Friday with a Pop Quiz to see what students already know about MLK Jr. You can also use our KWL chart from the Activity Pages to chart what students Know, Want to know, and later, have Learned. Print and photocopy the first Activity Page and the Vocabulary page for students to take notes on during and after the movie, and send them home to be completed for homework! On day 2, spend some time exploring the FYI activities for some high interest reading and a pretty great comic. Finally, take the quiz again and revisit the KWL chart to assess student learning. Voila! Let me know how it goes!
