Martin Luther King, Jr. lapbook

This is another lapbook that Rebekah and I made in 2008, with inspiration from Jamin, my lapbooking friend! Here is the link to her MLK Jr. lapbook: http://homeschoolblogger.com/jaminacema/268869/

We usually listen to the "I Have a Dream" speech online and do a coloring page, as well as read a book or two about Martin Luther King Jr.  Now we can also review this lapbook!

On the cover is a small part of the speech with a picture of MLK Jr.  Below that is a summary of his life.
Cover
 On the inside, there is a "teeny tiny book" about Martin Luther King Jr., and then Vocabulary words and "What I Learned" booklet.

The vocabulary words are:
discrimination
dream
justice
leadership
minister
nonviolence
peace
protest
racial
civil rights
segregation
speech
struggle
boycott

Here is what Rebekah wrote on the "What I learned" booklet:
I learned: that he was shot and killed in 1968 and that his "I Have A Dream" speech was a very good speech. He was African-American and he helped other African-Americans.

Inside folder #1

Open vocabulary mini-book and Me and Martin mini-book

The "Me and Martin"mini-book is a worksheet that compares her life with Martin Luther King Jr.

Included were:
Date of Birth
Place of Birth
Brothers and Sisters
Activities Enjoyed
Father's Occupation
Mother's Occupation
Goal in life

We learned that they had their mother and father's occupations in common: His mother was a teacher like me, and his father was a minister, and Joshua is a worship Pastor! Cool!

(At this point, her goal was "to be a pro ice skater and skate REALLY fast!") LOL
Inside timeline and Q & A
Here is her acrostic poem that she wrote:
Did great things
Really helped the black people
Kind to the black people
I have a dream was his great speech
Non voilent
Georgia was where he was born and lived

Inside folder #2
 Above, she wrote that her dream is: that one day I would be a professional ice skater. 
I can help my dream come true by: taking lessons at the Glacier Ice Arena and geting good at it. ;-D
Back
 And on the back is a coloring page that she colored, trimmed  and the date that we finished the lapbook.
Here are the sources for the worksheets and mini-books:
