Martin Luther King Jr. Activity

After reading the picture book Martin's Big Words, I take Martin's Big Words (his quotes from the book) and have my students illustrate the different quotes to make posters. I love to see my students' different interpretations of each quote. This activity really gets my students thinking! I love all the different representations of the quotes, all different, yet all accurately portrayed.
Here are a few examples:

Didn't they do a nice job? Simple, but POWERFUL! So much can be learned from a small picture book! They loved the book, the discussion, and the project!
Find these quotes here.
