Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Ways to honor his legacy with your kids
There’s still work to be done to make sure all people have the freedom to live their dreams in peace, safety, and dignity. In our classrooms, we’ll be taking a closer look at the life and legacy of Dr. King, and how we can keep his dream alive. But first, let’s get to know Dr. King a little better.
Who was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
Babies and toddlers (ages 0-2) can celebrate his birthday!
Preschoolers (ages 3-5) can show kindness.
Elementary schoolers (ages 5-10) can create a chain of hope.
Dr. King’s impact is still being felt today, around the world, and here at KinderCare. Watch this video to see the impression Dr. King has made on the lives of some of our teachers, how his work has influenced them, and what dreams they have for the next generation.
Bring the celebration home through these activities and by providing space for children to respectfully talk about our differences and similarities, so that we can all come together to make his dream a reality.
