We have been working hard on our display for Martin Luther King Jr. Day! We learned that Martin Luther King Jr. helped to change the world through his speeches and protests to help bring equality to the people of the United States.

After carefully cutting out our creations, we put them together on a banner along with our painted hand prints, which hold ideas for how we can make the world a better place as well as the lyrics to Ben Harper's song With My Own Two Hands:
