A timeline of major events in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life.
When discussing MLK Day and the civil rights movement, display this timeline in your classroom for students to reference.
This timeline has a road theme with each date displayed on a road sign. There are images in the download that relate to some of the dates on the timeline.
Ways to use this resource:
- Print on tabloid paper and assemble yourself to display in the classroom.
- Print on tabloid paper, display the road, and use the road signs as an interactive student activity to practice sequencing and chronological order.
- Print on tabloid paper, display the road signs, and have the students match the images to the correct event.
- Print on letter paper, preferably on cardstock, and put it into a reading center for sequencing and chronological order practice.
Print as many copies of the road, found on page two (2), as needed to assemble the timeline.
There are color and black and white versions available. In the black and white version, the images are color, but you can set your printer settings to ‘greyscale’ if you want to print them in black and white.
