  1. Provide as many materials as possible for your students to explore for this center. If you have access to the Internet in your classroom, there is a wealth of kid-friendly and useful information about Dr. King.
  2. have your kids create a simple chart (based on instructions you post) labeled with the six common questions:
    • Who
    • What
    • When
    • Where
    • Why
    • How
  3. They will need to use the resources you provided to answer the questions about MLK's life.
