Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! If you are a parent looking to turn today’s day off of school into a learning experience for your kids, a great way to do so is to look at YouTube videos that highlight the amazing work of Dr. King. Today, our kids will be working on MLK day printables, like this one from Mama Knows It All, and watching quite a few of these videos.
This would be a great way to open up a discussion with your children about Martin Luther King, Jr., the rights of all Americans, and even a pre-cursor to learning about the whole Civil Rights movement. These would also be great to view for Black History Month. After watching these videos together, check out my post on hoow to Teach Your Child To Be An Advocate for Change. Our kids could change the world, just like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I hope these help you!
