The March on Washington

The March on Washington

The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963 was the setting for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech and a critical moment in the American civil rights movement. In this worksheet, children read about the March on Washington, the ideals that inspired it, and the people who attended it. They then follow a creative prompt to imagine they attended the March, and the message they would have wanted to share. Designed for a fifth grade social studies curriculum, this worksheet lends well to a lesson on the civil rights movement and U.S. history.
