'I Have a Dream' Scroll Martin Luther King Jr. Day Activity

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a great time to create an "I Have a Dream" scroll. Dr. King had a dream for his country and its people. In this activity, you can personalize his message by making your own list of dreams. What are your dreams for the future?

What You'll Need:

Drawing paper

Markers or colored pencils

Two 9-inch wooden dowels

Transparent tape

Use markers or colored pencils to write your dreams on a piece of drawing paper. Some of your dreams may be serious and some may be silly. Draw a picture to illustrate each dream you write down. For example, if one of your dreams is for clean air, water, and earth, then draw the world.

After you have written down your dreams, display them on a scroll by taping a wooden dowel to the top and bottom edge of the paper.
