Observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a Family
Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Make it more meaningful by helping your child do some research to understand why King is an honored figure. Together:
- Look up facts about Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life. Where was he born? What jobs did he have?
- Research the work King did. What causes did he support? What did he believe in? Talk about important concepts such as injustice.
- Read King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech. You'll be able to find the text online or in a book at the library. Talk about what King dreamed of. What are your child's dreams for a better future for society?
