The observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day earlier this month was the subject of a special lesson for Ms. Coleen Brunhuber’s second grade class. Students utilized iPads to research the life, work and character traits of MLK and following their research were put into groups to complete four different units each utilizing grammar, writing and reading skills. The first group wrote about Dr. King’s character traits and gave evidence of his life’s work to prove them. The second unit wrote acrostic poems using the word LEADER, while the third unit wrote facts about his early life. The fourth unit entailed each second grade student to write about Dr. King and one lesson they learned from him.
