Reflection: Complex Tasks M.L. King Jr. - His Story Was In the Past! - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


There are SO many great quotes in this book and topics for discussion. The second graders had a grasp on the idea of discrimination and how it was unfair to segregate kids from school, water fountains, and parks. We had a great discussion, which we will continue in Social Studies class. The vocabulary that I liked also includes the use of figurative language. Here's our discussion of idioms.
