    If you haven't done any activities for Martin Luther King's birthday, you could teach a lesson about prejudice by passing out a snack to half of class (boys or girls. Next explain only that group gets treat because that's just the way it is. Call class to meeting area and read A Picture Book of Martin Luther King's Life. Ask children who did not get snack how they feel (they'll probably still be upset). Ask those who did get snack how they feel? Explain that this is an example of prejudice and unequal treatment that Dr. King and other Black Americans experienced during their life. You might want to send a worksheet home explaining lesson and a follow up activity.
