Create a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day bulletin board with our collaborative coloring posters.
Color Martin Luther King, Jr. – Collaborative Project
This collaborative coloring sheet is the perfect MLK Day activity to do with your class. Students will use markers, crayons, or colored pencils to complete this activity. Appropriate colors should be used to make this collaborative art activity come together. It is suggested that you don’t use black marker as it will interfere with the lines drawn on the template (part of the artwork).
Print the template and distribute the pieces of the template to the students. There is a right side and a wrong side to each piece. The right side has a number written in the bottom left corner. Ask the students to turn the paper over and lightly record this number in pencil on the wrong side of the paper. (This is just in case the number becomes obscured by their coloring). Students then flip the piece back over and fill in the template with lines, patterns, and colors.
Once the students have completed their work, the artwork is assembled by taping or gluing the pieces, in number order, onto a large sheet of bulletin board paper. Or you can build an MLK Day or Black History Month Bulletin board by stapling the mural directly to your board. A guide is provided to see what the completed artwork should look like.
Pair it With a Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Activity
Once this Martin Luther King Jr. Coloring Mural has been put together, this forms the perfect Social Emotional Learning writing stimulus for your students to write about always doing the right thing.

This collaborative coloring mural has been divided into thirty coloring page pieces to suit most class sizes. If your class is smaller, ask your avid colorers to complete more than one piece, or better yet, have some fun and color one too!
