Martin Luther King, Jr. and His Dream

Children reflect on the meaning of American civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.'s message in this writing practice and drawing worksheet. Read students this excerpt from his famous "I Have a Dream" speech from the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Explain how Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned a better world of racial harmony and desegregation. Have children trace the words "I have a dream," and write them on their own. Then, have them articulate and illustrate their own dream (or dreams) for a brighter future with this thoughtful, creative activity. Designed for preschoolers through first graders, this worksheet is a meaningful early lesson on pacifism and civil rights.
