Our network of Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) schools celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. throughout the month of January. History lessons infused with social justice, art projects, books about Dr. King’s accomplishments and hopes for the future helped to inspire our students’ dreams.

Two schools’ examples of MLK Day projects that honor Dr. King’s legacy are detailed below:

At City Springs Elementary / Middle School, Kindergarten and first grade students in the Eagles Nest After School Program participated in the egg diversity activity. Students made observations based on egg color and appearance on the inside. Students came to the conclusion that we all look different on the outside; however, we are the same on the inside and should be treated equally.

Second and third grade students in the after school program participated in the MLK M&M diversity activity. Using plain M&Ms to compare and contrast (different colors on the outside, same on the inside and tasted the same no matter what color). They then related that to humans, concluding that we all look different on the outside, but inside we are alike and should be treated equally.

Hampstead Hill Academy’s Student Government Association hosted an MLK Day Of Service Sandwich-Making Event. Leading up to the event, students led a food drive in which students in grade 5-8 were able to earn service learning hours by donating requested items. At the event, students used the donated items to make around 200 sandwiches. The lunch bags were donated to St. Casimir’s Beans & Bread Program and distributed to people who are homeless through Helping Up Mission
