Use the facts you learn about Dr. King to make and play Martin's Match Game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

What You'll Need:

32 index cards

Markers

Research books

Find out facts about Dr. King to use in this concentration-type game. Divide 32 index cards into 4 groups. Mark the backs of one group "Open Doors." Mark the backs of the second group "Closed Doors." Mark the backs of the third group with positive situations, including "Peaceful march on Selma." Mark the backs of the fourth group with obstacles, including "Must pay poll tax to vote."

Turn all the cards face down and try to match "Open Door" cards with positive situations and "Closed Door" cards with obstacles. If no match is made, the cards are turned face down again. The player with the most matches wins. By the time you are through playing this game, you will be an expert on the extraordinary life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr!
