It’s important that as language teachers we always look for ways to connect with other subjects and explore more beyond our own subject matter. In many elementary classrooms across the United States, students are reading about Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy for this country. What a great opportunity to take an interdisciplinary approach.
It occurred to me that much like the Hispanic Heritage Month project I previously posted about in this blog, students can create an interview for Martin Luther King Jr. or create a simple bio poster to display around the school. Please click here to see the post.
If you are an Interactive Notebook lover, this template is perfect for you! Make sure you have multicultural crayons or markers available in your classroom. This is a great opportunity to talk about diversity in our country. After coloring the template, students should write information about Martin Luther King Jr. in the inner part of the template. I have also included a color version for teachers to use to make their sample for the class. Please see pictures below. Download your template here!
Last, but not least, this is also a great opportunity to talk about paz in our country and the world. Here you can download two color-by-number pages that will help your students learn a few colors and/or reinforce previous lessons about colors in Spanish.
