You may have been surprised to find out that Stevie Wonder wrote this song about Martin Luther King. He wanted there to be a holiday to remind people about this special man and his dream and by 1986 he got his wish!

Activity B

Draw a cloud shape on some paper and fill it with words or pictures of some dreams or wishes you may have for your family/community or for the world.

   

Activity C

Use some of the words from the poster above to help you design your own poster about Martin Luther King. Here are some examples:

If you would like to find out more about Martin Luther King and his dreams, you could carry out some research for yourself on your computer.
