Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an inspirational man who helped to change the world. Throughout our homeschool journey AJ has studied some fascinating people, from biblical characters to kings and queens. Unfortunately, we have only gotten as far as the Civil War and the abolishment of slavery when it comes to recent history. Next year our focus will be on history from the Civil War to the present, but right now we are in the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods.
Since there have been so many influential men and women in the recent years, I have decided to spend a little time having AJ learn about some of those people a few times each month.
Since Martin Luther King Jr. Day is coming up, I decided to start our new study with him. AJ has learned a little bit about him over the years and knows that he fought for equal rights for all people. It was hard for her to understand why he had to fight for the equal rights though. It is hard to try and explain how people use to believe when I have a difficult time understanding it myself.
Normally I would go to the library and check out a bunch of books for AJ to look through and research. I still can’t drive for another month at least, so our research was limited to the internet. I am still not comfortable with AJ searching the internet by herself, so I found a few good websites that I knew would be appropriate. I used information from those sites (and a few others) to make a printable pack about Martin Luther King Jr.
The four main websites I had her visit were:
