Martin Luther King Day occurs on the third Monday each January. It is a Federal holiday in the United States, which means it's a long weekend for many. If you have off school, you may want to teach about Dr. King either before or after the exact holiday.
Because MLK Day is associated with acts of service and kindness, you may also want to grab this kindness word search puzzle to accompany your lesson. I've also created a Martin Luther King Day word search.
