FREE Dr. Martin Luther King Mini Unit Study

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, and to honor this, Mama’s Learning Corner is offering a free Mini Unit Study on Dr. Martin Luther King.

Taken from her website: 

Enjoy working through this mini Unit Study in your own homeschool.  This small study is geared towards 2nd and 3rd graders who are (mostly) independent readers.  Of course the books, videos, and some of the websites could be used with younger children with an ample amount of mom’s help.

This study includes book suggestions, You Tube videos of King’s speeches, websites with pertinent historical data related to King and his family, and (of course) a section of Activity Pages.

She has also taken the time to link to other online resources about Dr. Martin Luther King.
