The Nobel Peace Prize was a dignified honor bestowed upon Martin Luther King, Jr. for his work in helping to create an equal society and bring peace to the United States. He is honored on his birthday, and the entire month of February is, in turn, a time to honor the rich history of African Americans. This year is a monumental occasion in African American history, as the first black President of the United States was also awarded the Nobel Peace Prize just as Martin Luther King, Jr. was before him.
Peace is something that our world is still struggling to achieve, but this project will encourage your child to brainstorm his own solutions to our problems. Just as Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Obama have dreams for a more peaceful society and have set goals and plans to achieve them, your child can come up with plans of his own. This project will not only tap into your child's creative and critical thinking skills to come up with a plan for peace but in the assembling of their very own Nobel Peace Prize, they will also boost their fine motor skills.
