Engaging lesson detailing the life of MLK, Jr. Read a book or watch a video about this great man's life, use the directions and photo samples to lead students in a directed drawing, label the drawing (for example- label his feet- Martin used his feet to walk and lead a peaceful protest, label his mouth- he used WORDS not fists, etc.). Fun and informative! Get directions here!
So sad :( prolifers arrested for praying outside the whitehouse ...a group of about thirty activists had gathered on the sidewalk outside the White House to pray and peacefully protest the immoral mandate. It is legal to demonstrate at that site as long as one continues to move. Once the six protesters knelt in prayer, they were arrested for disobeying a lawful order.
