Martin Luther King Jr Dream Quilt

Martin Luther King Day Activity

Looking for a way to honor Martin Luther King Day? This I Have a Dream craft and bulletin board project is perfect for elementary students.  These quilt squares are based upon the vision Martin Luther King Jr. had for making our world kinder and more accepting. Through this craft your students get to share their own visions for the world.  By combining the writing squares with graphic squares, your class can create individual or class quilts.

Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” Quilt

This print and use activity starts by giving each student two writing squares. As a class, brainstorm things they would like to see improved in their school, community, or the world. This isn’t about becoming famous, or having a billion dollars.

Then the students choose from among the 16 different graphic squares that best go along with their dream. There are also two blank squares for students to customize themselves.

I Have a Dream squares can be glued onto construction paper to make individual quilts. Or you can put multiples together to form a bulletin board!

Making the world a better place for everyone is just as important today as it was 50 years ago. Sadly our world is full of strive and conflict. Our young students are too aware of the problems that face our country and communities. With this resource students have an opportunity to share their vision for a better world.

When I started teaching, I quickly realized that student teaching didn't prepare me for the real challenges of being alone in a classroom full of young children. The learning curve was steep and time was limited. That is why I created the Literacy Garden. My hope is this will be a place for inspiration, mentoring, and connecting.
