MLK Packet and Civil Rights Photo Freebies

Tomorrow it's back to school for me! Break has been a whole lot of fun and I got some creating accomplished too!

I was able to finish my Dr. King Packet over break, which was a huge accomplishment! Some of it we will do on MLK Day and some activities I will save for Black History Month in February. It's an entire bundle of Common Core ELA activities integrated with social studies!

There are posters, a timeline project, a nonfiction reading selection and a guided highlighted reading activity, writing pages, word work activities, an easy bulletin board display project and some mind maps to get the kids doing some higher level thinking about the important issues of equality, justice, peace and diversity.

Over break, I visited The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. I am so fortunate to be able to go often, because it's only an hour-long drive from home. I snapped a few photo freebies while I was there to share with all of you for your lessons for MLK Day. This is the actual bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat! Feel free to right click and save them from here. Everything at the museum is enclosed in glass and track lighting is all over the displays so there are a lot of reflections. For more interesting photos, click here to download a slideshow freebie from my dropbox. 

Feel free to Pin and share!

Remember to enter the Teachers Notebook Sweepstakes every day! :)


  1. Jeannie, thank you so very much for sharing those wonderful pictures! What a way to make history come alive for my students! Living in rural SD, we have little access to great museums like the Henry Ford Musuem you visited. How very thoughtful and generous of you to share your 'real-life' photos with us!!
    Thanks a million...for ALL you do AND share!!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Jody! I hope that you can use the photos! I thought it was really neat to actually go on the bus where history was made. The pictures are the next best thing!

  3. Love these photos! Kids would love seeing it and it would be awesome to show them after reading a picture book about Rosa Parks! Thanks for sharing them!
